Wow. I hope that you all read the latest entry over at Writer Beware about a MegaScam pulled off by “agent” Christopher Hill. You should also check out the original plagiarism evidence posted at Dear Author.

Unbelievable.

And the latest books and business news links are up at Google Notebook. Who won the Nobel Prize for Literature? Who’s on the National Book Awards shortlist? And even Publisher HarperCollins UK is jumping on the you-deal-with-the-slushpile bandwagon. There’s a new imprint for Pocket, and what’s going on with Peter Jackson and The Hobbit?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

About Therese Walsh

Therese Walsh co-founded Writer Unboxed in 2006. Her second novel, The Moon Sisters, was published in March. Her debut, The Last Will of Moira Leahy, sold to Random House in a two-book deal in 2008, was named one of January Magazine’s Best Books, and was a Target Breakout Book. She's never been published with a lit magazine, but LOST's Carlton Cuse liked her Twitter haiku best and that made her pretty happy.
