Dear Anne M. Baxter,
Thank you for taking photos for me at California Writers Club. And for following up by submitting your comments to my blog.

For your children’s books, I recommend the talented agents at Andrea Brown Literary Agency  http://andreabrownlit.com/agents.php
I saw Laura Rennert at the San Francisco Writers Conference in February when she and Robert San Souci http://www.rsansouci.com/ were on the same panel. I’m a big fan of Robert’s children’s books; and, if I were writing children’s books, I would be honored to be represented by Laura Rennert (she is agent and author)  http://www.laurajoyrennert.com/

To identify prospective agents or acquisition editors for your historical novels for adults, read acknowledgment pages of your favorite historical novels (authors usually thank these folks); also go to: Association of Authors’ Representatives “AAR” to find agents for specific genres http://aaronline.org/Find

Use search engines to find authors’ interviews; after you find names of agents or acquisition editors, use search engines again to find their websites; then study their submission guidelines.

Go to: http://WritingCoachTeresa.com Click on “Teresa LeYung Ryan’s Events”
I’ll be glad to answer questions at any of my events.  I’m also available for private coaching or group-coaching if you round up 2 or 3 colleagues.

Cheering for you and your books!

    Dear Teresa,
    Your energy filled the room last Saturday at our California Writers Club/Sacrament Branch meeting. I experienced that “dose of vitality” that we writers crave, but don’t find every day. You encouraged our members and guests to own our own experience and announce it with pride. You led us in practicing assertive statements that required us to us fill our own writing shoes. Without putting anyone on the spot, you succeeded in gaining the participation of even some of our more reluctant members.

    I like to write about everyday people, including those who can’t speak for themselves, and the lessons they teach me. Thanks for encouraging me and others to be the writers we were meant to be.

    Kimberly A. Edwards
    As an author, I use my writing to:
    • illuminate the lessons I learn from everyday people
    • appreciate the universality of people around the world
    • speak up for those who cannot speak themselves
    I also desire to use my voice to
    • shed light on the isolation of children who lose a parent through death
    • bring attention to the complexities of food and other addictions

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

  • admin says:

    Hello, Blogshop & Maida, looks like your questions are similar, therefore here’s my reply. My advice to my clients about blogs/website is this: If your budget is small or nil, take advantage of no hosting fees (I recommend wordpress.com). There are limitations of course with a free site. As cyberspace guru Linda Lee says: “With a free blog website you cannot add paid ads and may be limited on what you can offer and sell.” My wordpress blog looks “different” because Linda Lee has set it into my website and I do pay hosting fee for my site. Thank you for asking questions that help other folks.
    Sincerely,
    Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
