Happy Wednesday everyone! In what I hope will become a weekly feature, enjoy the links below for some wonderful advice from industry blogs…and a little fun as well.

How do you know when you’re ready to query? Super agent Jessica gives sage advice for any aspiring writer

Have a favorite young adult book published in the last year? Nominate it for the 2009 Cybils!

The awesome Moonrat has a backlist post of some invaluable advice. This blog is a must-read.

All-star Janet Reid gives an interesting list of questions to ask prospective agents .

Good tips on book signings from Tammi Sauer at Kidlit Central. Now to just get to the point where I can use them!

An unbelievably disturbing post about how some people view libraries from new (to me) blog Murderati.

Side note, for any readers in the Ames, Iowa area, the Ames Public Library Book Sale starts Friday! Come add to your collection and help support the local library.

And just for giggles (because who doesn’t need more of those?), enjoy the Dan Brown Sequel Generator from Slate (via Pimp My Novel). Yes, I enjoyed The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, but I still found this entertaining. Also, do yourself a favor and check out the Sneezing Panda (warning: moderate volume if opening at work).

Happy Wednesday!
