Dear Ms. Snark,
I am on deadline for a book for HarperCollins – due Monday! – but I am in good shape.
Just wanted to say – love the blog. As a successful author (thank you Lord Jesus!) I normally don’t pay that much attention to the “how do I get an agent side of things” but I got a huge kick out of your blog. I am a former journalist and through a friend, my agent asked to meet me, and after that, it was all pretty simple.
BTW, I know Joanna Pulcini – I am represented by Linda Chester… Joanna is a lovely girl, and you are most decidedly not her. She is also hugely devoted to her clients, so I cannot imagine she would have the time for a blog.
Okay – back to work!
Thanks so much for you letter. I got a huge kick out of it too. Fortunately I've learned to recognize what the left hand is doing when the right hand is dishing up compliments. I'm really sorry to hear you can't imagine an agent who is devoted to her clients has time to blog. But that's ok: one of my great pleasures in this blog is helping people discover new things.
Okay - back to work!!
