For people wondering how to query a literary agent, you need to pop over to the blog of literary agent (and all-around nice guy) Nathan Bransford. He has links with all the essentials of doing it right.
One post of particular interest details the queries he received over this latest vacation — broken down by genre, length, and other factors… and then shows how many he requested to read.
The odds are long in this business (like AC/DC said “it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n roll…”), but you can substantially increase your chances by educating yourself on what an agent likes and doesn’t like and learning the proper etiquette of doing business.
Good luck!Share on Facebook
