Ten-World Tuesday: Are literary agents like wedding dresses?


Will you know the right one when you find it?

Nice one Kat! Here's another:

Forget the dress that turns me into someone I'm not.

I love this! That was so true about my wedding dress. I knew it right away. As for the agent...we'll see. :)

Btw, I commented on your trailer. Loved it! When does you book come out?

We can only hope we know when we've found the right now. I cringe everytime I hear stories of author/agent mismatch.

Yes! Yes, I really think they are. Perfect analogy.

LOVE IT!

I think the question is, "Will the agent know you're the right one?"

KM Wilsher said...

Oh how fun! I'm wondering if I'll know the right dress to meet my agent. . .

Never as good as your. Love Tues!

Perhaps as in my wedding dress search...I knew when I was looking at the WRONG one. :-)

One of my critique partners still occasionally mentions an agent we both met, because she thinks that agent would have been so wrong for me. And I agree. My agent now is a perfect fit. The other one was completely different, and not a match.

Good thought. Love the analogy!

Decisions, Decisions. I don't like making decisions. So...I hope so.
