Do you have a literary agent, or have you tried to find one who will take you on?
I have not yet made any contact with an agent, though I plan to in the near future. My best suggestion would be to get a copy of the "Guide to Literary Agents" series of books. They're pretty expensive if you want to own a copy, but the newest versions are always available at your local library. The book gives a lot of good tips about what you need prior to contacting an agent, and a list of agents in the genre you're looking to get into.
I should have prefaced this question--I am not looking for an agent and do know how it is done. I was just curious about our writers here and if they had started the battle.
After a lot (and I do mean A LOT) of time researching, I have recently started the process. It is very intimidating, but I am hopeful.
