So now I’m in the next stage of writing a book — the one that comes after … well … writing the book. That part only took me three years [insert eye-roll here]. So I guess I’m hoping the next phase goes a bit more smoothly. But I hear war stories. I’m not counting on it.
Instead of counting on anything, or just sitting around and wishing, Superman and I trekked to Barnes and Noble, and I bought this gargantuan book with a bunch of agents’ names. Then I bought some of those cute little Post-It flag thingies to start marking agents that seem like a good match for me. I was pleased that many of the names were already familiar (because of reading all the writer blogs, and because of hearing people talk on Twitter). But I’m really at ground zero, here. So if anyone has any advice or tips, feel free to pass them along …
I also bought Writer’s Digest magazine, because I heard (again, on Twitter! How did we survive without Twitter again?) that last month’s Digest was the “Get an Agent” issue. And I heard it featured a cover story on “24 Agents Looking for New Writers.” Hmmm. That’s me.
So here we go … Onward. … Advice welcome. … Especially from writers who target Harlequin — are there certain agents who like to work with Harlequin? Any recommendations?
