Oh True Blue Agent, Where Art Thou?

My writer friend Jo Moran directed me to a great looking-for-an-agent site. It´s It has up-to-the-minute information about whether the agent you are interested in is accpeting queries, and what his/her current interests are. It also include addresses and emails.
I plugged in Memoir, and was perusing the agents who say they are interested in memoir, when all of the sudden one stood out. It´s a gal in New York who SPEAKS FLUENT SPANISH!

Sent my query for my Mexican memoir, Fast Break South off to her today. She studied in Spain. We´ll see if she has an interest in Mexico too.


  1. I'll keep my fingers crossed :)

  2. I would say agents want to get paid like most folks and in this market, economy, dying print age, they don't want to take a chance.
    I forget what publisher are still in Philly.
    Once upon a time Westminster, Chilton and a few others did local books. Have you tried any?

  3. Que Bueno!! Your perfect love match is out there!
