WTPDF Writer seeking NFSW Agent

I am a Witty, talented, passionate, dedicated female writer seeking a nice, funny, smart, well-connected literary agent.

An agent who is seeking a YA suspense or a Tween paranormal. One has a witty, self-sufficient, smart, sarcastic, outdoorsy, electronic-savvy protagonist named Grace. The other, a deadly girl named Gabby.

I would like an agent who can happily commit to a long-term relationship.


One who:

  • loves to carry my manuscripts in his/her briefcase
  • refuses a kindle until my books are on it
  • love my characters, loves my humor, and absolutely adores me
  • believes with all their heart that my book will do great things
  • laughs in the face of economic times, knowing my book will prevail all recessions
  • calls me every day and showers me with compliments and multiple offers
  • has no edits for any of my subs knowing they are from pure perfection

My perfect agent is:

  • a relative or close friend of Oprah's
  • well-connected
  • funny
  • patient
  • nice
  • works 24/7
  • someone who loves my voice
  • prophetic
  • free or freeish
  • doesn't mind 15 emails from me a day
  • responds to every email with care and love
  • wants me as his/her only client so thy can focus 150% of their time on my book
  • laughs at my jokes
  • refers to me as "my #1 writer"
In return, I promise to:

  • write good...I mean well.
  • revise with a smile
  • offer 20% instead of standard 15% commission
  • only email once a day and turn off the "return receipt"
  • never prank call editors using your name
  • never use a dangling modifier, or a comma, splice
  • stay true to my character' arcs
  • mention you in my book acknowledgements...at least twice
  • give you a shout-out when I am on on Oprah
  • not complain too much about my book cover
  • not send you holiday cards with glitter
  • never use any cliche - to safe the life of me
  • to always show and not tell
Contact me in any way you wish if interested - twitter, myspace, facebook, email, phone, address, telepathy, bike messenger, telegram, in my dreams, when hell freezes over, sky-writing, cookie message, letter, television plea,

Shouldn't be too hard to find, right?

I don't know where to comment about the links you post but I have to say that Lee Wind's blog was a riot. That headline cracked me up: "Do All Drag Queens Look Alike to Straight People?" You've got such cool blogger friends...
