All the business news lately has been about price wars and e-readers. So I decided that today I’d link you up to some fun news. Here are four that you might find interesting:
1. Over on GalleyCat - How to Break Up with an Agent
Just in case you were wondering the right way to do it!
2. In the Philadelphia Business Today - an article on video blogger Gary Vaynerchuk who blogs about wine and as a result welcomes his first book in a 10-book deal.
3. Another success story - Lisa Genova sent queries to 100 agents. Four asked for the manuscript. Three rejected. The fourth never got back to her. She self-published. She's also now on the NY Times Best Sellers list.
4. And, finally, The Wall Street Journal touts a new author from Australia and asks, Is she the next J.K. Rowling? She's got a background similar to Rowling. And, get this, her manuscript was pulled from the slush pile.
Have Fun and Have a Great Sunday.
