Getting a Jump On New Years

Life Banner

I’m not even going to bother talking about New years resolutions. it’s obvious, getting published. So yesterday I sat down at borders for a couple hours with the 2009 edition of the writers market and I copied over in to my handy little Excel spreadsheet, all the New literary agents that A) accepted email queries or B) had websites.

I got a pretty big list from there, and that’s where I’m going to start sending my query letters for ‘Gone’ my first novel. In the meantime I’m going to start polishing ‘The Brood’ my second novel, which is a vampire novel. So hopefully I can pull some eyes from the twilight craze right now.

And with that I shot off two quick emails to different literary agents, noted the sent date on my spread sheet and now I wait. It’s my goal to send out 3 to 5 query emails every Sunday. I’m keeping the number small so I can research each agent and customize the email/letter as needed to hopefully attract the agent.

Stay Strong
