Sharks on display!

New York chapter of Mystery Writers of America sponsors:

The Inside Track: 
Top Agents Reveal How You Can Make Your Project Rise to the Top of the pile

More and more people are writing mysteries and getting published is harder than ever. The key is to write the best book you can. You’ve already done that, right? But then you have to find a publisher and you do that by getting an agent to represent your book.  This is harder than it sounds and requires first of all, a gripping query letter.

Literary agents  JANET REID of FinePrint Literary Management and MICHELLE BROWER of Folio Literary Management will discuss the purpose and structure of a query letter, and what makes a query stand out.

They will also tell you what an agent can do for you, what to look for in an agent, and the questions to ask when an agent offers representation.

There will be time at the end for the audience to ask questions related to getting your book published and the state of the market.

Wednesday, February 16, 2010  uh no, it's 2011.  Thank you Joelle!

Wish I could be there. But if that is the Astor Research Library, I did not know they HAD a sixth floor. The main reading room is on the second floor. Where are floors three, four, five, and six?

Ricky Bush said...

Yeah, it'll take me another month to actually write the correct year. Hope agents don't think that I'm living in the past.

Janet Reid said...

Steve, it's not the research library. That's 42nd and 5th, with the lions. This is a lending library branch at 40th and 5th.

We wish you could be here too.
