  1. Awesome roadside Cafe! It seems I need to visit twitter more, those author and book Oscar photos are fantastic🤩. It also sucks that I missed the discourse. Thanks for the highlights!

  2. I adore that Lily was matched with CoHo. Two of my favorites! ☺️ The twitter discuss certainly was interesting and a game changer too. I’ve Queried an agent before and I appreciate her very fast responses of one to three days at most. I noticed that after the twitter arguments though, she adjusted her response template to be much nicer. I think it’s definitely left an impact on the relationship between agent and client. I’d hoped to see some of the popular trend this week about ‘anyone who thinks romance plots are unrealistic’ on funny tweets… here’s one of my favorites in case you’ll like to add it for next week!


    1. Oh, I loved the romance plot trend! It was very lighthearted and just ridiculous! I saw Lucia’s too and couldn’t stop cackling. It’d be great Roadside Cafe


  3. Roadside Cafe, my favorite weekend fix 🍟
    I agree with Hannah above that I’ve been sensing some more humility in agent interaction; it seems this discourse needed to happen. I love the thread about querying writers owning our power. Thank you for sharing that! It’s a strong, brave thread and I’ll keep going back to it. We really can impact how we want to be treated based on who we choose to query. Because /we/ really do get to choose and can forget that sometimes. I think this is one of my best cafes yet 🙂


  4. I appreciate how tweet Chips is a merge of varying things. Like the joys of agenting. Despite how difficult the industry is right now, it is calming to see that there are agents who still love their job and that books are still selling to publishers! Another thread I appreciate is with the agent urging others not the make the relationship between writers and agents parasitic. It’s amazing to have them on our side so we really do get to speak up!

    I somehow missed the waterstones Oscar thread *gasps in horror*. Thanks for sharing that: it’s ridic. Isn’t it interesting how Oscars and Grammys are just so close to each other? This has definitely been an interesting time! Great Cafe!


  5. Loved reading the comments to this weekend’s cafe! One of the reasons I love this feature is because despite being a pretty opinionated person, especially when it comes to bookish things, I’m hesitant to tweet these opinions online. You never know what tweet would damn you hehe. Roadside Cafe for me is where I can express those thought so I love it 🥰 . Okay, I’m finished being mushy, hehe.

    I followed the discourse and it was a pretty heated moment out there. I thought it was even going to escalate but good thing it ended already. I don’t like the idea of knowing there’s that hostility between agents and querying writers. There’s already enough tension in the industry.
