What's Up the Street For Next Week?

Weddings!
June!
Those two words seem to go hand in hand. Anyone here married in June?
It's a wonderfully romantic month. Filled with romance, bouquets of flowers, vows of everlasting love...AND AGENTING NEWS!

What? How does that fit into June?
Well, Alley Cat Krista Phillips is now the proud client of nationally known Christian agent, Rachelle Gardner.
You can read all about it on Krista's blog. Oh yes!! Great news for June on the Alley.

Send your congrats to her AND Rachelle. We're looking for great things to happen this year - hopefully an Alley Cat publication or two??!??!
Here's hopin'

So....
with all the commotion, what's going on this week?

Monday - straight from author Shelly Beach's Writer's Workshop, Ang is bringing us tips on proposals and queries. Important info for anyone wanting to snag an agent or editors attention.

Tuesday - Julia joins us with a post about How Setting Shapes a Novel. It's a character that can frame, move, and help define your story.

Wednesday - If you haven't been around to check out Sarah's fabulous series on Self-Editing, you are not too late. Today, she'll bring you her next topic in the series: Self-Editing Checklist: Dialogue.

Thursday - Wendy brings another great writing post our way today - and it's a surprise ;-)

Friday - A much needed post for those of us who are trying to make our way into the writing world, Cindy brings Why the Rejection? A look at what's hindering our queries and proposals from making it beyond the slush pile and onto the bookshelf.

NEWS

The Alley has some nice posts to help you figure out the world of Agenting. Check out some of these links:
