I walked into the Hyatt with trepidation. I knew no one that was to attend the agents conference. The revelations came at me fast, though. Most everyone there had the same or similar misgivings about themselves, their work, and how their pitches would hold up to an agent's scrutiny. It made me feel better knowing that I wasn't alone. That lasted until the conference volunteer called me into the pitch room. The fear returned.
I didn't need to worry, though. The pitch session was fantastic. I met with an awesome agent with a great personality. She expressed genuine interest in my ideas.
Now comes the hard part. I need to spit-shine the sample chapters and construct a pristine synopsis.
If anyone out there is currently repped or looking for an agent and you have some advice, please leave a comment with your best suggestions.
Here we go.
