As a writer, I follow more than a few blogs by professionals in the writing industry. They are a great resource for agent info, publishers, classes, conferences, who's accepting submissions and who's not. I always learn something from each blog I read.
One of the blogs I follow is that of Holly Lisle
Holly is a savvy author and instructor. She's a woman with an opinion and not afraid to share it. Therefore, I was shocked when I received an email regarding her latest project, Rebel Tales.
Due to misrepresentation by a prospective editor going by the name of Kate Ferrari, aka Kirsten Ferrari, aka Kirsten Andersen, Rebel Tales is dead.
Misrepresentation by former Rebel Tales PROSPECTIVE editor
While Rebel Tales is dead, Holly is not. In fact, she announced a new class, How to Write a Series, that is going live.
If Holly can be fooled, then so can I or anyone else. I encourage everyone who is trying to break into the business to investigate agents and publishers before contacting them. Google their names, check for complaints and NEVER, EVER pay an agent to read your work. An editor, maybe. An agent, never. That's a scam.
