I discovered this database of literary agents that is totally kickass awesome. I am contacting agents this week about my recently completed young adult paranormal romance novel.
Anyone interested in checking out this "free!!!" yes "free!!!" database of agents please do so here. http://www.agentquery.com/search.aspx
I'm taking a different path with my current project. It's an adult science fiction story of two men from two different worlds - one dystopian and one utopian - and what happens when they meet. This novel will probably take me the rest of 2013 to write but it's a story that's been in my head for a while.
