The best advice I’ve seen so far about how to find a literary agent comes from Jane Friedman. She has a wealth of  experience and is well-respected in the world of publishing. Take a moment to read her sage advice about agents and all things publishing on her blog: Jane Friedman.

I’m reading her newest book, The Business of Being a Writer, and I highly recommend it for all writers. You can purchase it at your local bookstore or on Amazon.
