Q. Who are you?
A. I’m a literary agent based out of New York. I also run a lot (more than a dozen marathons to date, plus a few ultras), eat almost daily, read voraciously, and play the occasional video game.
And in fact I do like long walks on the beach.
Q. What is this, exactly?
A. A blog, nominally, but see the next question.
Q. How often do you update?
A. At whim.
Q. I have this idea for a book…
A. I’m glad you do, but I won’t respond to your online entreaties. If you must send me something, first go to my agent profile to read up on what I’m actually interested in.
Q. But my idea is different!
A. Great. If it’s more than an idea, read my agent profile to see what I’m looking for. Send via snail or e-mail, and not by blog comment or Facebook “friending” or even carrier pigeon.
Q. Can you link to my blog?
A. Maybe. If I like it or have good reason to, I will.
