Agent Query with Intelligent Support
A few decades ago, sending agent queries meant toiling over the dog-eared, coffee-stained copy of Publishers Marketplace, then typing or scribbling an agent’s address on an envelope, then on the infamous SASE. The one that was bound to bring a reply, maybe, who knows when. Then the endless wait ensued, with skipped heartbeats whenever the postman would drop something, anything in the mailbox. Then rejections, one after another, while hope dwindled and sometimes died a long and torturous death. Maybe a request for more material would make an author’s day, maybe that phone call that had changed many author destinies, shedding light on dusty manuscripts locked in waiting in bottomless drawers.
Fast forward to the age of electronic communication. What a difference did that make! One click of a button and an email can carry word of your new book in a millisecond. But there’s still the toiling over endless lists of agents, hours and hours trying to figure out which agent is least likely to say, “Thanks, but no thanks,” which likes your particular genre, and how each of them like their materials. What should you include? That’s also an answer that takes hours and hours of self-doubting labor to figure out.
Enter the age of artificial intelligence, and with the well-deserved drum-roll, AuthorExclusive’s Agent Query Service. All the toiling is gone, replaced by a few clicks of a button on an elegant form. Based on your book’s metadata, the system generates a customized list of agents that are most likely to return a favorable response. Your query and bio are manually reviewed, and if there’s a need for improvement to maximize your chances, one-on-one coaching is included. That’s it! No guesswork, no countless hours spent in excruciating labor away from writing your favorite characters. Yes, rejections will come just like they always do, because agents are still, and always will be, agents. But your time, and most importantly, your opportunities, will not be wasted again.
