Today has been a good day. Check my twitter post on the sidebar for more; otherwise I've determined not to post details about the novel querying process because possibly it looks tacky and otherwise just seems like not the best idea.
But for some reason I'm not as cagey about Twitter.
And in the course of my agent research I've found several good agents who are on Twitter. I want to follow them. But if I sent them a query and then follow them, I don't want them to think I'm following them on Twitter just so they'll notice me. (Like they'd even remember, but I've chosen to be overanxious about this.) Seems kind of tacky. But I still want to follow them because I'm an unpubbed novelist and anything a literary agent does or says is SUPER FASCINATING.
In the spirit of Twitter-stalking agents, here are two lists of agents and publishing peeps who Twitter: here and an even longer one. At least this way you can find interesting agents to follow on Twitter long before you ever query them. Yanno, so you'll look less like a stalker.
Ok now I feel like that crazy girl on the Bachelor who kept telling Jason the Bachelor over and over that she wasn't a stalker (between reciting the name of his brother's fiancee and his dog's mom's uncle once removed). Because if you have to say it, you probably are. So I'm going to stop writing now.
