Literary Agents & Book Publishers

If you are searching for a literary agent or book publisher, I highly recommend Writers Guide to Book Editors, Publishers and Literary Agents by Jeff Herman. This book contains a vast amount of information that will help you match your material to an appropriate agent or publisher. This book was a valuable tool during my search for an agent.

Agent Information

Agent Verification 
Ask them about an agent and they will tell you if the agent has had any business complaints made against them. This is a free service but to use it you must give them your snail mail address.

Association of Authors' Representatives (AAR)
When querying agents I highly recommend you choose one that is a member of the AAR.
