Guides to Gnomes and Literary Agents

I admit it. I have a gnome collection. It started about two years ago, when I read that gnomes actually originated in Switzerland. That article awakened a passion for lawn art I never knew I had. Since then I've collected gnomes from France, Germany, the U.S., and of course, Switzerland. (The ones in the photo above I bought at a flea market in Paris. As they are French gnomes, they are a bit delicate and prefer my living room to my garden.)

Anyhow. While I do not consider my gnomes dangerous, it doesn't hurt to be prepared, especially since I now own over 10 of these guys, some of which I've purchased second-hand. That's why I was excited to hear about Chuck Sambuchino's new book, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack: Defend Yourself When the Lawn Warriors Strike (And They Will). Whether you have gnomes or not, it promises to be a fantastic read.

Lawn art attacks aside, Chuck also writes a great blog for writers called Guide To Literary Agents Blog. It includes advice from fellow writers, how writers landed their agent, and also highlights successful query letter examples. I've referred to it on many occasions while working on my memoir.

Anyone else out there own some garden gnomes? Or a good guide to literary agents?
