PostSubject: What publishing-related blogs do you recommend following?   Sun Sep 25, 2011 1:42 am

I just found another great one: kidlit.com. This is by Mary Kole, an associate agent at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency who also writes young adult and middle grade of her own.
Quote :
Hey writers! I know that writing and publishing can be confusing. Not only do you have to hone your writing craft in today’s market, you’ve also got to become savvy about the business end of things. I’d love to answer any questions you have.
The question I was originally researching that landed me on her blog (through a link from Harold Underdown's site no less) was: where do editors and agents drawn the line between necessary and unnecessary concerning illustration notes. I thought Mary Kole's weigh-in was particularly clear, concise and insightful.

Thank you for the link to Mary' Kole's blog about page breaks! I've read conflicting info on this subject but after reading her blog I'm going to go with page breaks on my PB manuscripts. It just makes sense!

Showing our intended page breaks makes a lot of sense to me too. If we're going to put all that work into creating great page turns, why on earth would we then hide them from the editor? It's not like the editor can't (or won't) change them later if desired.

Thanks for the link to Mary Kole. I think adding page breaks to my manuscripts will not only have value for the reader, but will move me further into imaging what each page layout will look like, rather than the story as a whole.

Thank you!
