I'm back from an extended stay in Catatonic, a little known resort in the Catskills.
I'm less crabby for sure, and there are a bunch of people going to a writing conference this coming weekend who are going to be damn happy to hear that.
I'm offering a class there titled Going Commando: Working Without A Literary Agent.
It seems counter-intuitive I know, but frankly there are a lot of people out there who are published sans agent, and as the number of e-book publishers grows, so will the number of unagented authors.
I have my syllabus, but I thought I'd avail myself of your advice is you have any. If you've been published without an agent, I'd be glad to hear from you: what you learned, what you wished you'd known, mistakes you made and how you fixed (or didn't!) them.

And thanks for not remodeling the blog or covering it with graffiti while I was gone.
Who did this?!?!
