The perfect agent. There was a book I read recently that acknowledged her in the credits. I thought, "There might be something to this agent. This book isn't that different from mine." Then I decided to look up the agents of a few other authors who I know stack up nicely against my own manuscript.
And it was all the same agent.
You know you're a writer when you seriously consider stalking an agent.
But she's the one. The Dream Agent. The one I will query in 2009.
