Last week we reviewed some questions to ask your critique partners and/or beta readers. This week let's review some questions to ask if you have a literary agent interested in representing you.
First, congrats! Getting “the call” from an agent means you've worked long and hard on your book and your query and maybe even a synopsis. You've researched agents you believe would be a good fit for your book and your own personal style. You've bitten your fingernails down to the quick with all the waiting and hoping. And now you have an agent interested in talking to you! Yay!
Now, here are some sample questions to ask:
Janet Reid - literary agent
Rachelle Gardner - literary agent
Jessica Faust - literary agent
Victoria Lee - author
And, here are some questions you might be asked. Know your responses!
Maria Vicente - literary agent
Mary Kole - freelance editor, former literary agent
Finally, here's what one literary agency looks for in the writers they represent.
James McGowan - literary agent, BookEnds Literary Agency
Happy agent hunting!
