Please allow me a brief digression from Dracula & vampire literature for a moment (or scroll down to the end).
I am currently working on a first draft of my first real novel and I am hoping to have a draft done and enough progress on revisions that I will be ready to start querying come October. Since NY Comic Con is mid-October, I figured this would be a good opportunity to try to network and maybe create some buzz. Since I’m pretty new at this, I thought I’d reach out to you, dear readers, for some information, namely:
- Do you know of any literary agents (who deal with contemporary fantasy and the like) who will be attending?
- What is the appropriate way of finding and approaching agents and publishing professionals at a convention? I know I can find publishers at their booths, but since I’ll be querying to agents for the most part I’d like to be able to find them.
