Lynn Lovegreen @lynnlovegreen

@LZats Thanks for offering! I have been working on a book that is upper MG or younger YA. Any thoughts about the difference between those categories? #askagent
Replying to @lynnlovegreen

Well in publishing distinction is mostly sales—market-wise MG is a bit more open, but the difference is relatively slight. Academically, MG is about finding a place w/in immediate social structures and YA is about finding it in a community #askprintrun

Andy/P. Andrew Floyd @pandrewfloyd

@LZats As an agent, since you get to read things obviously before they're published or even repped - do you have favorite books that you have no one to talk about with or that you can only talk about to a few people?

I mean, all the books I’m on sub with I LOVE (editors, get on it!) But since I’m trying to sell them I talk about them all the time! I do get ARCs but don’t usually get time to read them until they’re already pubbed. #askagent

It's up to you--what else do you have in your bio? If you don't want to get into deets, say "previously pubbed" #askagent

@LZats Thoughts on Patterson's Bookshots initative? #askagent
Replying to @JimCangany

I love the idea as a way to get more people to read. I hate that they can't be called novellas. #askagent
