Wednesday Writers Hangout: Agent Edition

On Google+ yet? It's their latest foray into the social networking mosh-pit, currently occupied by Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, et al. And so far, I'm still intrigued. For one, it's strictly 18+, which means fewer posts like, "Beliebers will rool 4ever <3."

But beyond that, their Hangout feature is what makes it truly unique. Hangouts are like Skype video chats, expanded to accommodate 10 people. So a few of us authorly-types have been hosting Writers Hangouts (mine are on Wednesdays, noon PST).

This week we were joined by my über-agent, Kristin Nelson, who spent time answering questions about genres, queries, and the mystery of ghostwriters who pen books for the likes of Snooki. It's a tough job, but some poor writer had to get all up in that.

Yeah, I've been using Google plus. It' a great place to build a circle of professionals with the same niche and hang out with them.
