WHO I AM - AND WHY THE POSTS ON THIS SITE WILL HELP YOU LEARN THE ART OF QUERY WRITING:
I am the award-winning author of The Great Lenore. In the spring of 2012, the Los Angeles Review featured me as one of the authors under the age of 30 who is redefining literature.
And my journey to publication was as long and hard as any.
A couple years ago, in order to help others on their journey to publication, I asked 100 literary agents what was the biggest mistake writers made when querying them. Over 50 agents responded, and I compiled the answers into the blog post you likely came here for in the first place: "The Biggest Mistakes Writers Make When Querying Literary Agents."
Since then, I have put together a number of other resources on querying (including the ongoing 6 Simple Questions series), in order to help aspiring authors in their quest to get published. Those resources are listed below, along with three posts I put together on querying when I was searching for my (second) agent.
Read on (read all!). Then go forth, and get published!
