This is my dear friend Kathy's of Well Placed Words daffodil, thank you Kathy!
This post is a spring mix of various blossoms and one weed.
First up: a couple of FANTASTIC contests if you're looking for an agent:
Sarah with a chance is holding a contest with several great prizes, including lunch with well-known agents! This contest closes Sunday, April 25th.
On the QueryTrackernet.blog, they're having a one line pitch to an agent contest starting April 27th.
And speaking of great places, great places to go to find agents are QueryTracker.net and Agentquery are both excellent resources.
Now the one weed: I doubt if the spammers will get this message, BUT--here goes. At least I'll feel better. I vet every comment on my blog and say yay or nay on it's being posted. I allow anonymous comments because I have some family members and friends (Hi, Cynthia!) who don't have a screen name. However, if you're trying to sell me something that enlarges a part of my anatomy that I don't even possess, or trying to sell me cheap, bizarre drugs from some other country, or marry me to become an American citizen, or post something in gobbledygook, I reject your comment. I don't post it. Nyah, nyah.
There, vent over. I do feel better. Does anybody have a better way of handling this problem?
