Raw meat

I've started posting small bits of my fiction novels on a blog. Is there any way to promote my blog among agents?


No.

You start sending emails to agents about your fiction novels or blog and you're going straight to the spam list.

Send a query letter. Try to avoid using the phrase fiction novel if you want to be taken seriously.

I remain convinced that these folks mean "fictitious novel."

Like the novel Jack works on in the film version of "The Shining." Or, rather, the nonexistent novel he pretends to work on.

Q: Would you like to represent my fiction novel?
A: Well, I'd be happy to offer fictitious representation.

I hate the phrase "fiction novel." It makes me cringe like fingernails on a chalkboard.

No matter how based upon reality your novel is, if you're calling it a novel, you're annoucing that it's fiction.

Don't even get me started on the phrase "nonfiction novel."
