The great search for an agent…

Yesterday I started seriously sending out queries.  Scary.  It’s not even that I’m devastated when I get a rejection.  I’m not, really.  It’s more worry that all I’ll get is rejections.  You only need one yes, but what if it doesn’t come?

I have quite an extensive list of agents who represent young adult authors, and who don’t specifically state they won’t accept fantasy.  My question to all of you is:  What names do you have of agents in this category.  I’ve looked at all the websites and data bases.  I’ve checked books I like and found who their agents are, and yet I still find names I’ve never heard of before.  I’d love anyone’s input.  Even smaller agents or newer agents would be fine.  (Sometimes they’re the best because they’re still building a client list.)

And thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

  1. I am new to writing fantasy (urban fantasy, at that), so I don’t have advice for you on agents. You seem to be doing all the right things by checking out the agent listings on authorial-type websites. Have you looked at individual agency websites? They usually have a whole lot of valuable submission info.

    I do love your Progress widgets in the sidebar. What kind of widget is it? I’d love to get one for my site.

    Thanks,
    KJ
