The Preposterously Do-It-Yourself This Week in Publishing
For all those of you missing your daily serving of Nathan Bran Serial, may I suggest contributing something to a DIY version of This Week in Publishing?
I’ll throw out the easy one – Scott McClellan’s White House memoir, “What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception,” which I understand went on sale a little early due to demand. Is the demand there because betrayal sells memoirs – or because truth, long-awaited truth, sells? Suggested companion reading: Woodward and Bernstein’s 1974 “All the President’s Men.”
Anyone else have news of This Week in Publishing?
Drat…I missed a contest. I’ve been away raising a threshing machine some canine experts call a Chocolate Labrador. Ahhh…parenthood in your sixties!!! I’m teaching him to ride Kareem’s board tandem with me
Anyway, Polenth was indeed entertaining…congrats to her. Free surf lessons as a bonus prize!
Speaking of contests…Nathan…who are you rooting for to lose to the Lakers?

Great contest, Nathan. You rock, spending so much time helping people.
Post idea in case you haven’t done it yet:
I’m wondering what your opinion is on novel length for different genres. I know YA can be shorter, and fantasy can be longer, but I am hoping for an agent opinion. I’m wondering because I’m concerned that my MS will get rejected based on length (44K) rather than writing ability (though for all i know it could get rejected for that reason anyway haha).
And if anyone has any helpful links on the subject that would be lovely.

Beat you to it:
Oh. Duh. I read that one before. Thank you.
