Welcome to my Sidebar: Folio

"Thinking beyond the page."

Who: This is Folio Literary Management's shiny new blog. Folio represents a wide range of genres. Their author list includes Caitlin Kittredge (Night Life), Garth Stein (The Art of Racing in the Rain) and Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely). The blog is run by several of the members of the agency.

What: This is a fairly new blog - it's been running since late April - but it looks set to be a winner. Another 'industry' blog, it's crammed full of delicious tidbits about the business side of writing, and those all important, elusive creatures - agents :)

Where: Right here, or here: http://foliolit.blogspot.com/

Why: This blog looks set to be chock full of goodies for the wanna-be writer wanting the inside scoop on agenting. Topics covered so far include query letter tips, the top 5 things writers can do to help their in-house publicist, ten pieces of advice to improve your writer-agent relationship, and how to get the most out of writers conferences. There are also some 'opinion' pieces, such as what gets particular agents going with regards to characters. It may be new, but it's already home to a wealth of information - check it out ;)

When: Looks like once a week :)
