Guide to Literary Agents

If you haven't checked out this Blog, run right over and do it now. Chuck Sambuchino, editor of Guide to Literary Agents blogs about finding the right agent to represent your work. He blogs about the good, the bad and the ugly, and he doesn't mind calling out the ugly ones. Plus, he does agency profiles and gives us the inside scoop with advice from agents.

I read a lot of agent blogs, and the one thing that keeps popping up is that we (writers) don't do our homework when we query them. HELLO, PEOPLE. Wake up! There are tons of resources to help us. Guide to Literary Agents is one of those resources. Also just about every agent who has a blog posts query guidelines. Not doing the homework before submitting is just plain lazy. But that's okay, the more awful queries the agents receive, the better mine will look. So go ahead and ignore Chuck's advice :)
