Synopses & Querying
If you guessed that this section would contain the most links, bravo you! Why, you ask? Because it’s the question most asked of any agent and editor. Let me just say this before we move on to the links: Querying is not the most important part of the publication process. If you can guess what is, you can have a cookie. No, it’s not “getting an agent,” either.
A literary agent’s basic primer for writers who want to be published but don’t have a clue where to start. (Don’t worry. We all start there at some point until we get our feet under us. It really isn’t that scary.)
The eternal yet undefinable thing that agents and editors are all looking for. It really does come down to “I know it when I see it,” BUT Ms. Sokoloff does an excellent job of conveying just what “it” means.
