Today I sent queries to 57 agents begging for them to represent me and my novel. Despite reading numerous advice columns from agents assuring me that this is the way to do it, I’m skeptical. Blind applications don’t work well in any other job search, so why would they here?

Yet, two of the writers I know who’ve gotten from where I am now (overcommitted hobbyest) to where I want to be (overpaid pro) succeeded this way, so I’ll try it.

At least these days all it costs me are electrons.
