Agent Insider News

I know I asked for lots participants to join Operation Agent Ink who wrote INSPIRATIONAL, but do you know what an Inspirational book really is?

I asked Ms. Linda  Glaz of Hartline Literary Agency, (one of the pitch opportunity agents!!) to give us her thoughts. Here's what she said:

Inspirational is a story that doesn't necessarily need a spiritual "wake up call" but does have a spiritual thread throughout the book. 
 
Sometimes it's no more than a character's life leaning on God in a very low key manner.
 
There's generally no profanity, no graphic sexuality.
 
No drinking in a main character unless that character undergoes a real change during the story. 
 
But it shouldn't be preachy and judgmental.

  1. Thanks for that inspiration insight, Ink. These genres can be so defined.

    Been missing your blog...I've passed through, but you've been busy with stuff specific to the people participating. Looks like fun, but not where I'm at right now.

    Glad to see you're doing well in the NaNo. I've got to set aside some marathon days. Been a busy first week of the month.
