I Found It . . . Not

Yesterday I spent some time searching for literary agents on Writersmarket. I found six agencies that accept science fiction and religious manuscripts.

I found one that looked promising. The linked website said to read the bios of all the agents before sending a query, because each one has their niche.

I clicked on the first bio and voila! an agent who wants to see both religious and science fiction.

Until I kept reading. In bold letters near the bottom it said the agent was no longer accepting queries.

Sigh.

Luckily it’s only temporary, but how temporary? Two months? A year?

I searched the other bios and discovered each one specifically stated: No science fiction.

Sigh.

You’d think an agency would have genre overlap between agents . . .

Oh, well. I just have to keep on searching . . .

In the meantime, I’ll keep on writing . . .

I like ellipses today . . .

Or did you notice . . . ?
