Jessica Faust, James McGowan and I have been hard at work over at BookEnds on what we hope will be a new, fun and informative project for new and experienced authors and illustrators – or those that are just curious about the publishing business. We’re taking your questions on Twitter with the hashtags #AskBookEndsJr if you write or illustrate for children and teens or #AskBookEnds if you write for adults, and answering them in a video series.
We each have our own little intro/show name, and you’ll be able to find more videos from us in the coming weeks on the BookEnds YouTube channel. (I’m “What the Quack? Publishing Q&A’s with Children’s Literary Agent and Author Tracy Marchini”… and I’ll let Jessica debut her own!)
Meanwhile, in this first video I answer these two questions:
@bookendslit What’s the best course of action when a manuscript has been submitted to an agent who moves to another agency? a) Re-sub at new agency b) Re-sub to another agent at former agency c) Both a & b OR d) Neither, embrace the suck of not knowing #amquerying #AskBookEndsJr

Hey BookEnds, I have a #Publishing question: in a MG or YA nonfic proposal sample chapter (one that so often gets pasted into an email) is it important to have the footnotes and sources? Or is it ok to leave it out bc we are just giving a taste? #AskBookEndsJr #Askagent

I hope you enjoy the video and I look forward to answering more of your questions!
