Here are a couple of things that I should have included in my end-of-week roundup last Friday, but didn't.
First, the novelist Jacqui Lofthouse has her own web site, which I should have linked to but forgot. Here you can find not only details of her books but also information about courses and other events that she is involved in. Jacqui works as a life coach for individuals and small businesses.
Next, Julie Hill wrote and asked me to link to her, and why not. Julie is a literary agent (Hill Media) in California, and she heads a team of eight, so she is not just a one-woman band. Her web site provides further information about the fields in which she specialises.
Julie also runs a blog, called Astrology for Writers, Editors and Filmakers. Well, I suppose astrology provides as good an explanation of how publishing operates as anything else does. My own current reading tells me that I am looking out for number one, but that money and publishing do not always go together. Which explains a great deal.
