Tricia Lawrence Agent Erin Murphy Literary
Now, let me toss off my writer hat and bust out the math:
AGENT QUERY STATS

Total submitted: 33 agents
Sources: Writing in the Margins Query Contest Winner (6 agent requests);
#DVpit Twitter Pitch Contest (19 agent requests); various other SCBWI resources
Timeline: I submitted to agents in March and April 2016, and then signed with an offer in May 2016!
Full requests :15   *happy dance followed by sheer panic at waiting for responses*
Offers:3   (Yes, THREE! This was a hard choice, and in the end I went with the agent that I connected with the most and knew would be an advocate for my work and bring diverse voices to mainstream fiction because #WNDB. Plus, Erin Murphy Literary Agency is a fabulous agency for the Children’s and YA book market!)
