Well, the big hullabaloo in publishing this week started when Amazon removed the “buy” links to all MacMillan-published books over a disagreement regarding e-book prices. Check out Pub Rants and Et in arcaedia, ergo for summaries.

Writing a series? Do you query the whole thing or just the first book? Jessica at BookEnds answers in this post. (Hint: the answer is just the first book.)

Chip MacGregor had a very informative post on writing the “competitive analysis” section of a book proposal.

And for all you fellow kids writers out there, Chuck Sambuchino has a great post with must-read links. Be sure to check out the SCBWI Conference Blog for tons of information from this week’s conference!

Finally, super blogger agent Rachelle Gardner had this great post on The Top 10 Query Mistakes.

Hope everyone is staying warm! I’m headed to the Iowa State women’s basketball game tonight. Go Cyclones!
