For Writers on the Slush Pile

Hello. Procrastinating again? I don't blame you one little bit. You can learn quite a lot doing just that.

Today I discovered a blog from a Lowenstein Associates' agent. 

 Oh boy, just this weekend she received 175 queries. Just this weekend. It's enough to throw your quill in the air and pity the poor agent.

Take a little look at what happened to the majority of those queries: full text

I think I like number 48 best. Which is the one that touches you?


  1. Great post and link to blog. I did LOL at #48, but thought #46, won't represent Book 2 if Book 1 was self-published, was shortsighted.

    I recently signed up for the A to Z challenge and saw your blog listed so I just stopped by to say "Hi".
    I look forward to reading your alphabet posts in April.

  2. Hi Gail.
    Yes, #46 is shortsighted - they should check on sales before they make that comment, I reckon. It might've sold a million.
    Oh don't talk to me about alphabet posts - scares the living daylights out of me!
    Thanks for commenting.

  3. A good MBA writing assignment is a daunting task for the students as it involves in depth thinking, a tough topic/concept and critically detailed research and knowledge.visit site

  4. The majority of online MBA universities follow a particular format in the online setting. Students get study materials, assignments and feedback from professors online without ever attending any regular class sessions. The regular classes are substituted with online classes. comprehensive exam questions

  5. Essays, dissertation, projects, analysis papers etc area unit inevitable in university life. it's thought-about extremely unprofessional to form grammatical and orthography errors in these writings. more
