Agent Spotlight Updates

All agent spotlights and interviews have been updated as of 7/15/2020, and many have been reviewed by the agents. Look for them to be fully updated again in 2023.

Question Box

This is going to be my Question Box post. I know there are a lot of new writers out there, people new to blogging, and people with questions they've just never asked about the writing biz. Asking questions, no matter how trivial or silly you think it might be, is not stupid. Questions are seeds of knowledge and can help a person grow in a lot of ways.

So, I'm inviting you to leave your questions in the "box" and I'll see if I (or other readers) can answer them for you by posting them up on the blog (as many agents do, for example). They can be about writing, the publishing business, querying, blogging, me, anything! As long as they are appropriate.

Anonymous questions are welcome, if you feel more comfortable that way. And you can always e-mail me at agentspotlight(at)gmail(dot)com, if you'd prefer.

I'm going to put a link to this on my sidebar, so it will always be accessible. If it gets too long I'll make a Question Box II, and so on.

Ask away!


  1. Good idea. And I see your next agent spotlight is Stephen Barbara. I have had limited contact with him, but as far as I am concerned, he ROCKS!

  2. I love this idea! Thanks for organizing it.

  3. Ooh, the question box sounds way cool! I'm looking forward to it!

  4. Great site. I'll be a regular!


  5. For new (or veteran) writers with questions, I have compiled several informative posts on my blog attempting to answer the most common industry questions.

    The blog homepage is here.

    The basic post answering how to get an agent or write a query to is self-publishing a good option for me can be found here.

    Please let me know if you find these links helpful. Feel free to leave a comment or subscribe.

    Happy Writing!

  6. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah! It looks like you have a great, informative blog!
