Build Your Name, Beat the Game:  Be Happily Published

March 23, 2010

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
I saw Laura Rennert at the San Francisco Writers Conference in February when she and Robert San Souci 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)

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

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: 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!
