Finding and representing the next generation of authors
As a service to our clients, those wishing to become clients or those who prefer to "go it alone" or seek another agent, we provide this list of helpful links for all writers.
Visit our Blog
These are sources that our agents use to represent our authors, to help them perfect and sell their manuscripts. You can use these resources or you are welcome to submit a query to have your manuscript represented by one of our agents.
Suggestions for additions and corrections to this list are always welcome. Please send the information to Senior Editor and Webmaster Glenn Knight at Glenn@AgentR.com
