    Are you following the New Leaf Literary dumpster fire, at all? I know, most of it is just literary agencies doing what they do. But the way they handled things is lousy even by those standards. Particularly appalling is the author who said that her agent dropped her for even asking about the possibility of self-publishing a book that had been rejected. And the author whose agent gave her a list of editors that she should hire for her manuscript. The agent still dropped her after she paid $5000 to one of the agent’s editor buddies!
