In Case You Missed It...

It's kind of the talk of the town: Authors Say Agent Tried to Straighten Gay Characters in YA.

With some interesting follow up on Sherwood Smith's LJ.

Also, some interesting numbers about GLBT YAs in general.

In case you want to follow all the bits make sure to look at for the other author's posts and in particular her ETA at the end of this post where she specifically debunks the publisher's continual harping on the fact that they didn't go with either of their established agents. (One is non-fic only and they wanted an agent to represent the partnership equally and not be obviously biased in one author's favor)
