I’ll admit it. I’m overwhelmed at the moment. There is SO MUCH pressure (I’ve placed on myself) to find the “right” agent.
By right….I’ve got to stalk…uh…research! almost 100 agents. I have to find the ones that clearly represent cozy mysteries, ones that list mystery in their MSWL, and ones that all genres but “wants a voice that pulls me in, makes me laugh, fall in love…” You get the idea.
All this research is a necessity. If I’m lucky enough to find an agent I want one that is supportive, who understands my work, that can deal with the thousands of questions I’m sure I’ll have and is overall a good person. After all, this will be a hopefully long term partnership. Why would I want to spend that time with someone I don’t click with?
I’m right on the edge of the cliff. Scared out of my mind. Leaping, I will have faith. There’s a big bouncy house at the bottom that will catch me, right?
