Julie Anne Nelson blogged about her agent crush today, which is ironic because I was thinking about mine this morning. Well, not a crush-crush, but you know…
I’ve met one agent in my life and was enchanted. Heck, my husband heard her speak and even he (the non-writer type) was impressed. To boot, one of my writer friends recently signed with her and said she’s wonderful. *sigh*
Unfortunately, rumor has it she may be closing the submission door. Hopefully, this isn’t true. I noticed her interests have changed and am not sure she’s still into romantic suspense. Not that it matters at this point since I have yet to finish this novel and the r/s before it shall remain under the bed beside the first version of this book and my YA series.
Now, the whole situation wouldn’t be as devastating if I could meet more agents. Certainly, there are others out there who I’d love to have as a co-pilot to my writing career. I just haven’t learned about them yet. Still, nothing beats meeting agents in person. Although, a blog is a great second.
What about you? Do you have an agent crush? If you have an agent, were you crushing on him/her before you signed? How often do you think writers actually acquire their dream agent?
