This post is going live about 7.5 hours after I planned. Sometimes life just goes that way.
And on an unrelated note, when I went home for lunch today, it was 5 degrees in my neck of the woods. In case you were wondering, that's really bleepin' cold. Are you freezing wherever you are?
It's a funny thing, really. We dabble in their online profiles, trying to find the balance between an agent who has proven they have success and one who isn't overwhelmed by a work load. And what I write isn't as much romance as what lots of them represent and it has elements of what could be called magic realism, but not lots so it's still contemporary but not all the way. I'm sure everyone has gone through this.
So, here's the audience participation part of the game - I'm using a lifeline. When you were ( or if you still are) building your agent query list, what were the things that would make them cross from a maybe I'll query to a yes I want to query? And I've been hanging out on querytracker, but are there other sites you like that gave you more of an insight/ awareness of what was going on with agents? Any other suggestions?
