Tyree’s move is done, he added three chapters to Yoelin, is writing on Nyx 4, and is writing a teen story set in space.  Sales at MiniCon were the second best of any convention.

Dylan has planned out his panels to present at WisCon.  (Wikipedia)

Cassie added 2K words to Until Death Do Us Part, and 5K to a sequel.

Ciuin aced another paper and wrote a 14-page paper in one day.

Eugenia received an ad from a vanity publisher, so her name must be out there as a writer.


Many successful writers got there by using the services of an agent.   Wikipedia nicely summarizes their function, and this FAQ may be helpful.

Agents may differ from each other in their approach, attitudes, and the genres they represent to publishers.  Many directories, like Writer’s Market and this one, list agents to help aspiring authors query the ones best suited for their work.  Preditors and Editors can help you avoid some problems.  You can search for agents and learn a lot more from the examples posted on Query Tracker.  Here an agent answers less common questions.
