1. Writer Mary Walters thinks that agents are the problem with the publishing industry. I can't speak to her experiences, of course, but I have to say that if she's only been rejected by 60 agents, then I'm not sure she's exhausted all her options, yet.
The post, and the comments to it, are very interesting, to say the least.
2. Jessica, over at the BookEnds blog, rejected an author and suggested in her rejection that the author do some work on the query. The author's response? "Go f*** yourself."
Stay classy, writers!
