3 New Agents Seeking Clients

New agents are a boon to writers looking to break into the publishing world. They are hard-working, and eager to find and nurture new talent.

Three of my books were picked up by Random House because of the enthusiastic endorsement of a new agent.

Check out these agents, and, as always, read the websites of their agencies to see if your work is a good fit for them.
