General Advice for Those Seeking an Agent - video

Literary agent David Patterson provides insight on how to pick a literary agent. He says to start by looking for agents who are most like you. You can find literary agents in the acknowledgments of books that you like or that are in your book's genre. Authors usually thank their agents in the acknowledgments, so it's an easy way to find good literary agents. When you find a few agents you like, it's okay to send your proposal to more than one, because you likely won't hear anything back for a while. Agents are busy working for the clients represent, so be patient.
