Agents Seeking Writers

Hi, readers!

Following are some agents seeking writers of women's fiction. I got their names and contact from an email I received this morning.

10 Agents Who Have Confirmed to Me That They're Seeking Women's Fiction Submissions NOW 

To celebrate the release of my 3 new books, I'm doing some guest blogging on other writing sites. One of those sites is Amy Sue Nathan's Women's Fiction Writers site. And the post I compiled is called "10 Literary Agents Seeking Women's Fiction NOW." Check out an excerpt from the list below, or the whole list of 10 over on the WFW site. Note that all listed agents confirmed to me personally that they were happy to be on the list. (And keep in mind this is solely for women's [sometimes called upmarket] fiction, not romance or erotica. If you're writing romance or erotica, check out the Corvisiero Literary camp on Oct. 12.)
