What's Up The Street For Next Week?

Here at the Alley we like to celebrate. And lately the Alley Cats have been exceedingly blessed on their writing journey. They have taken their work seriously, worked hard, perfected their craft and now we get to shine the spotlight on some of their successes.

AND we get to celebrate ANOTHER success this weekend! Last weekend it was Wendy's agent news and...



Sarah is now the proud client of Books and Such literary agent, Mary Keeley!!!!

Pass on your kudos in the comments section, we are SO PROUD of our Alley Cats here!! : D

Coming up...

You're headed to that conference. Big or small. And there are editors you want to meet, agents you want to chat with and friends to bump into. Angie has a great post on networking at a conference on Monday

Middles are so easy to get stuck in. On Tuesday, Julia will share her post on moving past that troublesome sticking place in our manuscripts.

Sarah continues into Part 2 of her series on pitching at a conference on Wednesday.

Bring that troublesome ending on Thursday, newly agented Wendy will have tips for us.

Writers love to read books they love, but can you strengthen your writing by books you don't? Cindy discusses this topic on the blog this Friday.


To celebrate the Alley's 400 followers (YOU!) and so much agent news going on around here, leave a comment and I'll draw two names to pick a book from my swap list.

See the Alley notice on the right hand side bar?? THREE of our Alley cats are now agented!! Big news for our blog AND these writers! It's only a matter of time now before a first sale. I just know it.  ;-)

BE SURE and check out the Seekerville Weekend Edition tomorrow (Sunday) for some exciting news!

Pepper has a conference series of tips from authors all this coming week on her blog. Don't miss it!
