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.


Happy Monday Everyone! I'm sorry not to have an agent spotlight interview with Molly O'Neill today. But I do have an update on her status. She recently left Waxman Literary as of October 1, 2017 and is now at Root Literary. She is not open to submissions for a bit while she gets her clients settled into her new agency. We have reset her interview for January 22, 2018 when she should be open to submissions again.

I am also working hard to update the agent spotlights and have updated them through Laura Bradford. Many of the agents have reviewed and made corrections to their spotlights. I know that I have a lot more to update, and I am trying to make more of an effort to get to them.

Here's what's coming up:

Monday, October 30th I have an agent spotlight interview and query critique giveaway with agent Quressa Robinson

Wednesday, November 1st I have a guest post by author Dusti Bowling and a giveaway of her MG contemporary INSIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF A CACTUS, and my IWSG post

Monday, November 6th I have an interview with debut author Jodi Kendall and a giveaway of her MG contemporary THE UNLIKELY STORY OF A PIG IN THE CITY

Monday, November 13th I have an interview with debut author Heather Kaczynski and a giveaway of her YA science fiction DARE MIGHTY THINGS

Tuesday, November 14th I am participating in the Gratitude Giveaway Hop

Hope to see you on Monday!
