Curtis Brown agent Nathan Bransford explains that if you want to make him read your entire manuscript you have to be good enough not to miss the backboard. Well, he says it with a bit more finesse in the sports metaphor, and it’s an entry worth reading even if you consider basketball to be ‘ten really tall dudes running around in their underwear.’

Editorial Anonymous explains what happens after you send in the manuscript.
