Agent Blogs

Man, it has been a dry season for markets lately. I scoured my lists yesterday and I couldn't find anything noteworthy. I try to be open-minded when I post markets. My only real criteria is that they pay professional rates or have superior exposure. For contests, I try to post only those that don't charge an entry fee.

But the well's been dry, so I will leave you with agent blogs. Yes, I can hear Mike cussing me out across the Atlantic Ocean for giving him yet more reasons to procrastinate and not write. Tough toenails, Mikey. (Notice how brave I am when I have an ocean protecting me from the man's wrath. LOL!)

I have all of these agents on my reader. I'll let you decide who has the best blog.

Speaking of agents, in a few days I will direct you to an interview I did with Colleen Lindsay. She gave a lot of smart advice. I was impressed with her publishing experience. Stay tuned for the link.

Rachelle Gardner's blog. She just posted last week a call for historical romance:

I have an announcement and call for submissions: I am looking for HISTORICAL ROMANCE. Feel free to submit a query in this genre if:

a You have a completed manuscript and ideas for sequels
a It takes place in the U.S. somewhere between 1800 and 1930
a It's REALLY good

Thanks, Angie!
Great intel.

Ruv Draba said...


A note of encouragement and honour: you do so much good with your posts, and in reading your blog entries I see that you are growing too. I applaud what you are doing in both cases.

Very best,


Maria Zannini said...

Oh, thank you, Ruv.

I know some people like these posts, but it's always nice to hear. It makes it all worthwhile.


Mike Keyton said...

EEEK! All those links. Lucky I have a 93K script to crit...but after that?

Maria Zannini said...

You're in my clutches now, Mike.

Josephine Damian said...

BTW: Did you see this?

Maria Zannini said...

Thanks, Josi!
I did see this from your blog. I'll update this post.

Cool - you have an agent listed I want to submit to - MacGregor. He has a blog. I'm writing an inspirational romance right now and he represents authors who write in this genre. Rachel Vater is very nice. She rejected my ms. after she requested a full but gave me great suggestions. It was published after rewrites.

Thanks for the agent lists, Maria!
