My Question

Hey, guys, so far you have been great helping me! But now I have a new question for you.

I know that there are some great agents out there who are newbies, but I have a hard time finding these. I would be willing to take a risk and try and agent with no sold projects, provided their training is reputable.

But where do you find these agents? I know some of them are at conferences, but I can't afford to go to those. Is there a newbie agents website or some way I can search for them?

Thanks for your help! You guys rock! :D

When I did query, was my home base. From there I followed the links to the various agency's websites.

I know, nothing startling and new, but that's how I did it. Hope it helps.

Also, I'd suggest, if any of the agents you're wanting to query have blogs, check out their blogrolls. All the agents' blogs I've seen link to others.

Remember: an agent shouldn't charge you anything to work with your manuscript.

Also, Nathan Bransford just posted recently about hiring a new agent.

Thanks, Carradee! I actually read that article Mr. Bransford posted. It was really good. I enjoyed it. :)
