RIP, Miss Snark

Just a quick note to mourn the passing of one of my favorite blogs, Miss Snark, the literary agent. Miss Snark has hung up her stilettos and, apparently, decided to focus on real life instead of her blog (boo-hoo). She wrote from the perspective of an anonymous literary agent who told the truth about the business side of the literary world…and with a delightfully snarky sense of humor. (Typical comment: “You need to be hit on the head with a clue stick.”)

She promises to leave her archives posted, and believe me, you can’t get a better picture of what writers need to know about agents and publishers anywhere else. But don’t start searching unless you have a lot of time…she’s addictive!
