What’s playing on the iPod right now? HOW SWEET IT IS (TO BE LOVED BY YOU) by James Taylor

I’m running out the door for the weekend (and I’ve got 15 minutes to pack) but an editor friend sent this little note my way:

Del Rey has recently started a big group blog, a sort of a hub for SF/F news and all things geeky; and Betsy Mitchell has been writing a series for it that gives a little bit of insight into the editorial trenches – I thought possibly it might be of interest to your readers? Here’s the most recent post.

It is nice to know that even the legends are still learning.

And I agree. You might want to click around a bit on this blog. Enjoy!

    That’s a great resource, even if you don’t write SF/Fantasy (which I do not). I poked around the blog and found interviews and well-written, information posts.

    Thanks for the tip! 🙂

    Thanks for that link. Betsy is my (new) agent, and I didn’t realize she was blogging. Now I have her on list.

    Hey, thanks for steering me to that blog. I’m a Sci/Fi fantasy author myself, and though your blog is wonderful I’ve often wanted a more direct view into agents and editors dealing with my particular affliction. Er… affection.

    I have two different query letters. There’s one I call “normal” and one I call “creative.”

    I’m thinking I’m going to take a chance on the creative one for you now. ^.^

    Thanks for posting about this. I tried the link several times, but it didn’t work for me. It seems to have worked for others though.
