Recently, two agents extraordinaire have announced their retirement from the blog world: Nadia Cornier of Firebrand Literary Agency, aka Agent Obscura, posted her goodbye message on May 11. And now, we bid a sweet adieu to the queen, Miss Snark.

Luckily for those of us in the trenches, both have insisted the blogs will remain up, archived, for anyone who would like to refer to them for sage advice, witticism, or good old fashioned snark. I’ll miss them both, but now think I may have more time to get some writing done.
