Are people really this foolish?
At my RWA writer's meeting today, we had an agent come in and talk. She mentioned how important it is to have a blog, web site, and other promo things. Then she said how some people have posted email from an agent or editor on the blog, or have mentioned things like "my book is sitting on X's desk and I haven't heard. This is the fourth editor who's considered it, yikes, I hope they love it".
This made me go back into my archives to see if I've committed such a faux pas. Whew. Nope.
I think people forget that blogs are PUBLIC property. You may only tell a few friends your blog listing, but words does get around. Agents and editors are reading these things.
This was one of those "DUH" moments for me. But it also made me go back and see what I've written, both here and on other blogs.
So I guess it was useful after all ...
