Agent Consultation

What is the best way to find an agent? How long should you wait to follow up with agents who are non-responsive? If an agent sends an encouraging rejection letter, should you revise your manuscript and resubmit to the same agent? Do you have an agent, but wonder if you need to part ways and find another one? Researching, querying, and managing relationships with agents can be a nail-biting experience. I can help demystify the process.

We schedule a date, I call you at the appointed time, and we discuss all your agent-related questions in 60 minutes. If we finish in less than an hour, we bank the remaining time for another day. We’ll schedule the phone call within 30 days of my receipt of the fee and signed agreement. Payment can be made via Venmo, check, or money order. Note: I do not act as a matchmaker between writers and agents, nor do I review written material for agent consultations. If you desire feedback on your work, I recommend you opt for a manuscript edit, manuscript critique, or manuscript read.
