Literary Agents – a helpful list

Hello and finally I have a second blog post! I’m just tearing up the internet, here. But I have big news! I have an agent (did I really just type those words?) – I am represented by the lovely Alice Speilburg of Speilburg Literary, and it’s a dream come true.

It was a long, hard slog to get an agent. In the spirit of helpfulness and not wanting all my work to go to waste, I’ve compiled a list of all the agencies I found who represent fantasy. There are more, I’m sure, but this is a start.

First of all, here are a few websites you need to check out.
