Book deals a-plenty
For those of you who track such things, Publishers Weekly has a new set of deals listed here.
I find book deals fascinating, especially in the literary fiction and young adult categories. These genres are driven by cultural trends, to wit: zombies. If you write tight zombie fiction for teens these days, get yourself an agent, pronto. Vampires were recently hot thing, and still continue to generate sweet deals for new twists on a very old (and overplayed) theme.
What’s the next hot genre? If I knew I wouldn’t tell you. Heh.
