• Have you tried QUERY TRACKER? It’s good for finding the names of agents and agencies by genre, but then you have to go to the agency’s website to learn more concretely what each agent is looking for and how they want you to contact them. That doesn’t change the fact, however, that only a percentage will even reply and in most cases, those that do will just send you a form rejection. I believe a better way to meet agents is to attend writers’ conferences where you can pitch your book. That has always garnered me the opportunity to submit pages.

      Thanks, Peter–and my apologies for only seeing the comment now. I haven’t yet tried Query Tracker, although you’re the second of my friends to suggest, so I shall do so. Attending conferences is hard for me now that I’ve left the US, unfortunately.
