Helping Authors Find Literary Agents

The Publishing Pulse: April 5th, 2013

This week, New Adult was added to the Querytracker database. It’s currently a work in progress since New Adult has only recently been accepted as a genre. Agents are slowly getting onboard as editors eagerly tell them what they’re looking for. 

If you’re unsure what New Adult is, please read this post. And if you hear of an agent looking for NA and who isn’t on the database, please let Pat know so he can update the list. Thanks!

As far as posting pictures on my site I decided a few months ago to only put my own stuff up. That way I can be sure I'm good. Besides the cover of my book I just posted everything was either drawn, painted or taken by me. Thanks for the post lots of good stuff in here.

Courtney, I've fixed the problem. Sorry about that.
