What’s playing on the iPod right now? POSSESSION by Sarah McLachlan
My agent friends and I often laugh about how “in-the-know” some of our clients are.
In fact, it happened this morning. So many published authors are on chat loops, the minute even a hint of a rumor (regarding a line, or an editor, or whatever) gets whispered, it’s out in the loops in a flash and all the authors know about it—lots of times even before the agents do.
And I love that my clients immediately call or email me so I can track down or confirm the scoop. Now sometimes the rumors are wrong but a lot of times, where there is smoke there is indeed fire.
This always startles the editors but I’m not sure why. They must know that authors love talking with each other and there are many many venues in which to do so.
So I just have to say that if you are a published author and you aren’t linked in, you might want to get there. All you have to do is ask the other writers in your genre where they get their news and sign up for that loop (although some are invitation only).
You too can then be linked in. It bears an eerie resemblance to Radar Love mentioned in the song by Golden Earring.
