Asking Santa for an Agent? - by Christina Farley

Happy Holidays everyone! Have you written your list to Santa? One thing you might have on your list is: "Bring me an agent, Santa."

The other day, we MiGs were chatting about agents and offers and revisions and all that good stuff. After our chat, I thought how helpful it would be to put together all of our thoughts and ideas on what to do when you get that "call" from an agent.

So I made up this vlog that goes over each step of the process, some questions you might ask during the phone call and why you should ask those questions. I hope you find this helpful.

Anything else you would add to this list?

Christina Farley's debut YA, GILDED, releases fall 2013 by Amazon Children's Publishing (formally known as Marshall Cavendish). She is represented by Jeff Ourvan of the Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency, LLC. She blogs and vlogs about writing and traveling, and is often found procrastinating on Twitter.


  1. Thanks Christina for the fantastic advice. I've bookmarked this to listen to if I ever get the call. It's very timely because sometime next winter I plan to query my upper MG fantasy, including to your agent. Happy Holidays!

  2. Christina is as lovely on Video as she is in still-photos. Good Vlog info packed into two+ minutes.

  3. Thanks guys. You are very kind. I'm glad you found it helpful.

    Natalie- Jeff is a great agent. Wishing you the best of luck!
