Here are resources that might have the vital information to help you find the right agent and ways to improve your manuscript and your query and send it on a successful journey to publication.

1. These two big guides have inspiring and information you need to know about agents and how to contact them.

  1. Query Tracker is a free service that will keep track of your query letters to agents and publishers using a highly advanced tracking system. It will help you find agents and publishers using its wide database. It also has a premium membership. I suggest to use what’s free first. They also have a blog.

  1. Boy oh boy, Joan! When I am ready to search for an agent, I know which blog post I’ll come back to study. This is so helpful. It can also be used to prepare a little at a time by selecting a blog to study or by checking out several at a time. You offer your readers such a wealth of resources. Thank you!

    1. Dear Linda,
      I’m glad you liked my post. There are plenty of blogs to study here. These agents, editors, and writers share their wisdom in many different ways. I believe a person could spend a day on each blog and never stop learning. It could be a self-designed workshop. I look forward to your coming back to study these resources when the time is right for you. Thanks for writing. Have fun!

      Never Give Up
