Welcome to the official blog of the Sydney T. Cat Literary Agency! Sydney is known far and wide as the world's worst literary agent! Of course, she isn't bad -- for a cat! Yes, as not everyone knows, there are no laws (in the United States, anyway) regulating literary agents. Pretty much anybody who can print some business cards, stationary, or maybe just put up a blog or web site, can call themselves a literary agent!
So one day, Sydney thought, "why not me? Don't I DESERVE at least 15% of everything? (Actually, what she thought was, "GIVE ME TUNA," but it's all there if you read between the lines. So, over on our home-blog, YorkWriters.com, I posted an announcement. I kind of figured that, like so many of Sydney's ideas, it would simply go away the first time she was distracted by a small, moving, object.
But no, people started asking where they could send submissions and if she was taking on clients. The answer on #1: "Sydney is a busy cat. Save her the time, and shred them yourselves." The answer on #2: "No, but feel free to send bribes using my PayPal donation button. PURRRRRRRRRR!"
You can, however, pretend to be a Sydney client by purchasing a souvenir or clothing item from her Cafe Press shop in the sidebar to your right. Sydney will also, periodically, answer your writing and publishing questions in the worst way possible. Free free to post them in comments here, or email care of me, her
