I know, I know, what am I doing posting in the middle of the day? Well, I had to rec this blog: Nathan Bransford. Nathan's an agent with the SF office of Curtis Brown, and entirely too young but I'll forgive him because he's fricking funny.
I know Kristin Nelson does some great posts about the intricacies of the publishing contract. But she never mentioned "hos" and "Pocahantas" alongside information about royalties and advances (which I now understand), so to me that gives Nathan a leg up.
Sadly, he rejected my query, but I'll forgive him if he keeps making me laugh.
