Agent News - 8/22/10

As you can see, I'm running behind again on the blog updates. I had a good excuse...I was working on an R&R of WICKED PARADISE. For those not in the writing world, an R&R is a "revise & resubmit" requested by an agent. But it's done and I'm moving on...

There's only a couple items to report, anyway.

Agent and former publisher of NAL Elaine Koster died on Tuesday, at age 69. Elaine Koster represented Khaled Hosseini among others. Elaine was also well known for acquiring paperback reprint rights to Stephen King's CARRIE from Doubleday for $400,000 while she was at NAL early in her publishing career.
