Too Many Agents!

STATUS: Office move. Chaos. Sneezing from way too much dust. Slightly crabby.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? Well, I found my iPod stereo but didn’t have my iPod with me. Knocks hand against forehead.

Last week I did an email interview for Finn Harvor’s blog Conversations in the Book Trade (I don’t think it has posted yet). He asked me an interesting question. He wanted to know if I thought there were too many literary agents working currently in the field.

Jokingly I replied that when I’m vying against several other agents for the same client, then yes, I’d have to say there are way too many agents.

Guess what happens today? I read a fab project that I must have. I have a great conversation with the author. And yep, you know it. Five other agents also want to sign her.

Five good agents. Five agents that are tough competition (I grumble to myself). I’m happy to be one of the five but lol, too many agents!

But if you’re reading (and you know who you are), pick me. Hehe

(hey, do you think this blog gives me an edge on the competition?)
