Agent Spotlight & Agent Spotlight Updates

  • Agent Spotlights & Interviews have been updated through the letter "K" as of 3/28/2024 and many have been reviewed by the agents. Look for more information as I find the time to update more agent spotlights.

Thursday Agent Spotlight Profile

Ginger Knowlton, Curtis Brown, Ltd.
Just a quick note to let you know I've updated Ginger Knowlton's profile, originally posted in 2009. I've e-mailed her with a request to review it and will add a line to the profile if she does, probably at the end under "Contact" (unless you think there's a better place?).

I started contacting each (newly) profiled agent in Feb of 2010 with a review request and have been leaving a note in the comments if they respond. I'm not sure everyone reads the comments though, so I think it's a good idea for me to add this information onto each profile with the date of review. It will take me awhile to go through them all, so please check the comments in the meantime.

I'll keep you updated!

ETA: Ms. Knowlton has reviewed her profile. This is what I added under "Contact" info:

Profile Details:
Last updated: 1/21/2011
Agent Contacted For Review? Yes – 1/21/2011
Reviewed By Agent? Yes – 1/22/2011
Comments: Positive response. No requested changes.

Look good? Thanks for the input, everyone!

Thanks for your hard work, Casey! This is one of the most useful blogs I've found, and I refer everyone to it.

Elizabeth Briggs said...

Thank you so much for all your hard work on these agent profiles. They are so helpful!

As a suggestion, when you update the profiles (for example, Ginger's), maybe you could make a note on it somewhere such as Updated 1/20/11? Just an idea.

Casey McCormick said...

Thank you Gaylene! I'm glad you find it useful.

Elizabeth, I usually leave a comment when I update, too, but I'll start adding a line for that with the last review date. Good idea! Thank you!

Maybe you need some symbol so that we can tell at a glance which profiles have been updated. Maybe put an asterisk by their name?

Carolina M. Valdez Schneider said...

Excellent idea, Casey! Your blog has served so many writers. My guess is a good portion of debut novelists this year have you to thank for helping them find their agents ;)

Beth said...

I think the updates are a great idea. Not just to include relevant information, but also to remind us of some great agents that we might have missed or forgotten about. Thanks!

You. Are. Amazing. Thanks so much. Your blog is a wonderful source of information, and you're pretty stinking awesome too. :D

Casey McCormick said...

Lisa, that's an interesting idea. I would probably have to add it to profiles that have been posted or updated within the last year, as I've been doing *some* updating for a few months already now.

Thanks Carol!! I hope I can find some more success stories to share. I have two more in the works but they might not be up for awhile.

I agree Beth!! It's good to look back and review older Spotlights to see who you might have missed!

Thanks Amanda! You're pretty fabulous, too. : )
