Free at last from retail hell!

For three wonderful days I don’t have to ask people if they want gift receipts, or gift cards, or a foot up their watoosie. Now I get to be on the buying side of things.

And the first thing I bought is the new Poets and Writers with the up and coming young agents on the cover.

The only one I’ve met in real life is Dan Lazar and I have one really complimentary thing to say about him right up front: he’s very consistant. All the information that he gave in the interview/round table discussion was very similar to the information he presented a year and half ago at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference. So, in working with him you’ll know that he’s not a schizophrenic psycho…and he loves Stephen King. He’s soooo gonna rep me–even though he doesn’t know that yet.

If you get the chance, check out the whole article. It’s really interesting and touches on a lot of business aspects of writing that we writers need to know that we need to be willing to do.

  1. And I think there’s more in the online version of the article. Check it out on the Poets and Writer’s site. Somewhere in there he talks about not making a seven-figure sale and the author added a note that two weeks after the interview he made one.
