I may or may not be the only writer around these here parts who'd heard of Query Tracker before but never actually took the time to go check it out. (Sometimes, my independent streak really bites me in the ass)
Last night, while browsing through the list of old saved "Agent/Writing Websites" -- that's the highly original name I gave the bookmark, btw -- I found Query Tracker. This time, unlike the last, I actually took a few minutes to stop and look around. Now I'm kicking myself in the pants for having made one portion of this journey much harder than it needs to be.
True, Query Tracker may not be all encompassing, but over 1200 agents listed gives a pretty damn good starting place. And it is sooooo much easier to click a genre and have agent names & websites -- with statistics -- pop up, than it is to sort through the 2000 or so pages in my current literary guide. And it's FREE!
Oh well, better late than never. But I have to ask, what are your MUST SEE sites? I'm wondering what other places I may have heard of & inadvertently dismissed in those early days when I was positive I knew more about this whole writing deal than I actually did.
REMINDER: DGLM agent, Jim McCarthy, is holding a live online chat from 3-4 EST this afternoon. Click here for the details.
Happy Thursday, All!
