Literary Agents or Publishers?

My roommate and I have published new books in the past few months which we are mostly handselling. Mine is crime fiction set in Alabama and Florida and his is interconnected short stories (of the roman a clef, bildungsroman tradition) set in Liverpool and Atlanta. We published POD with BookSurge and, naturally, would love either a savvy agent or commercial publisher. Any advice, other than the standard Jeff Herman's/Literary Marketplace/Writer's Market? All and any input will be…

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

For agent listings - athe best, free resource, is www.agentquery.com. It is updated daily. Also Preditors and Editors website.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.

Margaret Drabble is one of my favorite writers -- and you don't hear much about her . . .

Florida seems to lend itself to crime writing. Good to see another librarian here - I work in an academic library, so I don't get to have as much fun.

Jane! Where do you work in Florida? I'm in Glendale, AZ now, but I worked for the Lee County Library System for 18 years before moving out here.
