So, I always leap at the chance to work with brilliant and talented people. So when Pela Via asked me to do something for ManArchy Magazine, I said, “Sure.

And, now my sixth column is live up at Lit Reactor. It’s about how to get an agent. Now, I don’t HAVE an agent, so keep that in mind, but I’ve gotten very close, and I’m very familiar with the process. Heck, if you have any new ideas, let me know. It’s a slow, painful process […]

You can read her column right here, and YES it IS the same WordPress site. Cute isn’t it? We’re like twins. http://larina.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/simsubs/ I’ll post […]
