Can you recommend a literary agent to represent me?
First, congratulations on finishing a full-length book. That shows commitment. You’re right to want to find an agent. The best way to do so is to get yourself a copy of either (or both) THE WRITER’S HANDBOOK and/or THE WRITER’S & ARTIST’S YEARBOOK. These list all the UK-based literary agents, and publishers, and crucially they tell you what kind of books they handle, as well as how you should submit your work. As I said, this is crucial. For instance, you don’t want to send your whole book, if they only want a letter plus the first chapter. There are probably online versions of these available, but when I last looked the print copies were still going strong. I hope this helps – and good luck with your book.
