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.

BIG AGENT SPOTLIGHT NEWS!


Happy Wednesday Everyone! It's my birthday today! And I'm very happy to celebrate by announcing that all agent spotlights and interviews have been updated for the first time in Literary Rambles' history. I'm SO excited!

I've wanted to update the agent spotlights for years. One of the silver linings of having to stay home due to the pandemic is that I started updating all the agent spotlights and agent spotlight interviews in April and recently finished updating all 175 of  them. It's made me feel good to do something to help writers in the safety of my home.

Many agents reviewed and corrected their information. You will be able to tell which agents reviewed theirs in the Profile Details at the bottom of the spotlights and interviews.

Going forward, I'm planning to try to update the spotlights for agents that switch agencies or start their own agency when this happens. I'm going to review and update all of the spotlights on a three-year schedule, which means they will be updated again in 2023.

Three Ways You Can Help Me

I'm hoping that everyone who uses these spotlights will find them more helpful now that they are up-to-date. Here's three ways you can help me:

  • Share on your social media sites that these agent spotlights have been updated so other writers know that they will helpful in their agent search and ask your followers to spread the word.
  • Be sure to let me know of any changes to the agent spotlights by leaving a comment on their post or emailing me at natalieiaguirre7@gmail.com.
  • Support the debut authors that I feature by reading their posts, leaving a comment, and spreading the word about their book or ARC giveaway contest. In these challenging times, debut authors need our help more than ever to spread the word about their book releases. 
Thanks so much for helping me! I really appreciate it.

And you can see all the agent spotlight interviews and author/agent guest posts that are scheduled at the top of the blog. These are great opportunities for you to have direct contact with an agent and get feedback on your query letter. You don't have to want to query the agent or have a submission in the genres that they are looking for to enter the contest.

Here's what's coming up:

Monday, July 20th, I have an interview with Jess Redman and a giveaway of her MG contemporary Quintessence

Wednesday, July 22nd, Angela Ackerman of Writers Helping Writers will be here to celebrate the release of THE OCCUPATION THESAURUS written by Becca Puglisi and her with a big giveaway  

Monday, July 27th I have an interview with Olivia Wildenstein and a giveaway of her YA romance Not Another Love Song

Wednesday, August 6th I have an interview with debut author Sasha Laurens and a giveaway of her YA fantasy A Wicked Magic and my IWSG post

Monday, August 10th I have an interview with debut author Chris Negron and a giveaway of his MG contemporary Unmasked

Monday, August 17th I have an interview with debut author KayLynn Flanders and a giveaway of her YA fantasy Shielded
