BookEnds did a post today about dream agents. First, it's always good to have another reminder that what we say on the internet is permanent and going to be read by A LOT of people. That's the idea of a blog, right? Second, do people really post about dream agents? That's a good idea, I'll post about mine now.
My dream agent is one who loves my book as much as I do. There. Now it's permanent for all to see. Like most of you I have/am studying agents. I'm trying to find ones I think I can relate to, cover my genre, or are just misguided enough that I can trick them, I mean convince them to sign me.
I understand how after reading an agent's blog for years it would be easy to believe I already have a connection with said agent. In reality I can't imagine choosing a dream agent without having at least one conversation with her. One not on the internet. Or imagined. I want to find someone who is passionate about my story and has a plan for marketing it. Someone who is competent, knows what they are doing, and who believes in and trusts me, just like I would them. Yep, that's my dream agent. Of course before I can find them I have finish this revision and send out queries. Be ready agents! I'm coming for you.
