More Miss Snark (vol 6)

I'm trying to weed these down to just the very best, but she's done such a lot of fine industry writing that it's tough.

First, what does an agent do besides sell books and negotiate contacts?

Second a pair of posts on why an agent doesn't always keep a client up to date on where things are on submission. The opportunity side. The client/agent relationship side.

Third, querying an agent on a revised project.

Finally, another matched pair on the too long and too short of it for novel length. My own take on this is that her too long note is spot on but that her too short leaves out another category exception, YA which can be as short as 40k.
