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.
