I envision this blog as a place to communicate with writers, as well as my colleagues in the publishing industry.  I should make it clear from the outset that I am not an expert in my field, but rather a young professional with plenty to learn.  In a sense, I think that’s what will make this journey so exciting.

I welcome questions and comments, and really look forward to establishing an engaging dialogue.  Let’s get it started!

    Hi Chris,

    I read your comment of the Jonathan Fields article on Huffington Post, and thought I’d visit your page and ask a few questions.

    I am about halfway finished with the first draft of a fiction novel, and have neither an agent, nor publisher, (I know ~ lucky me, huh?). One question I have is, at what point should I begin the hunt? Do I wait until I have a final draft that I am comfortable to present, or should I start earlier, pitching the idea before the novel is fully written?

    Another question is, and I’m sure you’ll be bombarded with this one in no time, are you taking on any new clients? If not, can you give any advice on how to find one? Are there any tips on how a “new” writer can make himself more attractive to an agent?

    Thanks for the help.
