Miss Snark, Literary Agent
I came across Miss Snark’s blog years ago, and it’s been one of my favorites ever since. The very aptly named Miss Snark describes her occupation as “Satan’s literary agent”.
Her blog provides an immense amount of information on the publishing industry, delivered in such a hilarious, scathing voice that her anonymity is a wise career move.
Miss Snark closed her blog in 2007, but I’d encourage anyone interested in the publishing industry to take a look at the wealth of information, insight, and humor she has left for us to enjoy. While names, titles, phone numbers, and specific query guidelines within the industry continue to fluctuate, the vast majority of Miss Snark’s information is just as relevant today as it was they day it was written.
Just… don’t take it personal, okay? She’s like that with everyone.
