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!
