Next time you're wandering around the bookstore, be sure to head over to the writer's reference section and check out the beautiful four-page spread that just happens to be my essay about my road to publication in the just-released "2011 Guide to Literary Agents"!
From the book description:
To help writers acquire an agent, GLA provides names and specialties for more than 750 individual agents around the United States and the world. GLA includes more than 90 pages of original articles* on finding the best agent to represent your work and how to seal the deal. From identifying your genre to writing query letters to avoiding agent pet peeves, GLA will help writers deal with agents every step of the way.
* including me!
