Tips From the Agent

Please include a paragraph in your cover letter about yourself—your background, your publishing history, if any, and so forth. Mention that you found me through the Poets & Writers Literary Agents database. Keep the e-mail query letter to the equivalent of a page. Please send the very first chapter of your novel, not a middle chapter.
