Welcome to the new DGLM blog and website!

Welcome to our shiny new home, blog readers!  For the new year, we bring you a new DGLM site, a merger of our website and blog.  Thanks to everyone who made suggestions a couple months ago on features and tech questions—where possible we’ve incorporated your feedback, and other things we’re keeping in mind in case we can implement them in future.

We’ll be blogging as usual over here at www.dystel.com now instead of at Blogger, and there are also some other things for you to explore over to the right (unless you’re not currently reading this on the site itself, in which case you might want to just poke your head in and take a look!).  You might be interested in learning more about us and our clients.  If you’re an author looking for representation, perhaps you’ll want to peruse our FAQ, Submission Requirements, Who We Are and What We’re Looking For, and Nonfiction Proposal Guidelines.  Need something new to read?  Check out our Staff Recommendations, Recent and Forthcoming Titles, and What We’re Reading in the column on the right. Maybe you want to know where we’ll be?  We’ve got a calendar with our upcoming conferences and events in that sidebar as well!  Of course, if you’d like, please feel free to use the links over there to Subscribe, Follow, or Like us and share our site with others!  The new blog should start feeding into our Twitter and Facebook accounts today, so if you’re already following us there, you don’t need to do anything.  If you’re reading us in a blog reader, please subscribe to the new RSS feed.

Make yourselves at home!

As always, we want to hear from you!  What do you think of the new digs?  Any suggestions for improvement?  Glitches we may not have caught?  (We hope not, but let us know if so!)  New features that you’d like us to consider?  We can’t always implement everything recommended to us, but we’re always open to hearing your ideas.

  1. Don’t you hate people who respond to something with all caps?

    So I won’t be that guy, but still, imagine the repressed enthusiasm with which I say “this website is fabulous.”

    Truly, you have developed a website and blog that helps me understand the humanness of the publishing industry – that there are people behind the mysterious closed doors of the agency.

    Most of my writer friends have this belief that one writes his MS and then, at random & with no sense of hope or purpose, sends his queries to ungrateful & insensitive agents who are going to say “No” but who take their sweet time in doing so. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I am so, so glad to find this website and agency. I appreciate the generally positive & helpful tone of the articles, and I most appreciate the feeling I get of real people behind the names and e-mail addresses.

    Thanks for sharing all this great information and insight, as well as the humor and positive attitude behind the articles. I of course would want to be represented by an agent someday, but if I could choose an agent, I think I would like someone from Dystel & Goderich.

    The new website and blog looks great. I’ve changed it on my Google reader but may have to hop over here more often to soak up the ambiance.

    Guys, I’m so happy you’re back! I really missed you. As Mr. Matlock said, if I could pick my own agent, it would be one of you (although I’d have a hard time choosing!).
    The new website, the layout, the colors, everything looks great. Congratulations!

    I was wondering where you’d gone. My mornings in bed reading blogs just wasn’t the same without you. So glad to see you back in the blogosphere!

  8. I really wanted to send a small word to say thanks to you for the fantastic points you are writing on http://www.dystel.com. My time-consuming internet lookup has at the end been honored with extremely good ideas to exchange with my pals. I ‘d express that many of us site visitors actually are extremely endowed to exist in a notable community with so many lovely individuals with useful points. I feel really fortunate to have used your webpage and look forward to so many more fun moments reading here. Thanks a lot again for a lot of things.
