Agent Query

All aspiring authors need to check out this site! It’s an amazing resource for all aspects of writing. I first stumbled across this site when I finally decided it was time to get a little more serious about my writing. I think I’ve always written, but it was always just for me. For fun.

Agent Query has it all. There is great advice for everything from writing the dreaded query letter and synopsis to finding an agent. Their database of agent information is truly incredible and very user friendly.

Agent Query Connect is a free forum for writers. There are well over 100 discussion groups to help you out. The most popular is the Query Critique forum. Writers at all stages of their careers help each other to create the best queries possible. Other groups focus on first pages, first chapters, agent updates, writing tips, and so much more. There are also several critique groups focusing on various genres.

Check it out using the link on the side. You won’t regret it!

  1. In addition to Agent Query, I also use Publishers Marketplace http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/ and Query Tracker http://www.querytracker.net/to research agents before I query. Best of luck!

  2. I also use QueryTracker, but haven't checked out Publishers yet. Thanks, Debra - I'll head on over and have a look :)
