How to Get a Literary Agent
Query smarter, not harder, to find the right agent for you.
I only queried for two weeks before I received multiple offers of representation and signed with my agent. But wait, before you hate me, you need to know that those whirlwind two weeks came after a full year of querying a previous version of The Book, which received a literal hundred rejections and one revise-and-resubmit request. Those revisions took me a year to complete and ultimately still resulted in a rejection and subsequent trunking of said Book for another year before I decided that I wasn’t done with it. I pulled it out, revised it with fresh eyes, queried again, and signed two weeks later.
