Getting a literary agent

All of a sudden, your Facebook account will be crowded with news for frantic authors who are willing to do anything if it means to be public. So, if you want to catch an agent, you have to set yourself apart from the masses. In this way, the bulk e-mailing of every individual you can find on LinkedIn will not take you anywhere.

{\a6} (Not least because no one will ever take you anywhere.) Often there are several different agent employed by different companies, and each of them will have something special to look for. Stumbling at this barrier has a good chance that your work will not be considered at all. It doesn't make any difference if you don't like it.

Irrespective of whether you have nothing to say in 140 or less letters. Tweeters is your boyfriend, and it's worth remembering. Look for the frahlings' profile and then track each one. A good idea is to use OneNote to make a paper listing the hash tags and holds of each individual agent and then check their profile every day for 15 min - it syncs to your mobile so you can even do it on the coach if you don't have your tray or notebook at your fingertips.

When the agent asks for a one-page summary, do not try to make an impression by mailing them five. Don't even try to wow them by send them one and a half. You use OneNote to create a spreadsheet that shows exactly which agent wants what, and then select the option when you submit your work.

Some of the players on their web pages indicate how long you can wait before coming back. It averages six to twelve week, although this is very different, and some of them are harder: if you don't succeed, you won't be able to overhear. Anything you do, do not call or e-mail the agent to ask if he has seen your work, unless a) he has asked to see the entire script but then has not reported for several consecutive week, or b) another agent has indicated his interest and you let him know.

Just because one work is not right for one agent doesn't mean it doesn't work for another. Don't forgetting to join me again next weekend when I start learning how to deal with Young Adam Faithless and make my script stand out.
