Can anyone here shed some light on how best to seek and acquire the services of a literary/publishing agent? I've finished a novel that is mainstream crime fiction in the Elmore Leonard vein and I'm having trouble finding a catalog or list of agencies that accept unsolicited work. Any direction would be appreciated.

Ps. I've already checked Leonard's agent, also known as The Jackal).

no one? how about this. are there any forums for aspiring authors better suited for such a question?

i won't bump again, just in a bit of a quandary here. anyways, thanks for reading.

See if you can get a copy of the writer's & artists yearbook 2016. It's specifically aimed at people in your situation and should have all the information on who to go to and how to ask them.

People come here to chill out, not to talk about work-related shit, OP.

Why does that image have a picture of Thomas Hobbes with a Rousseau quote?

What a pointless comment.

Copypasta from a previous thread a while ago:
Getting an agent
0. finish writing and revising your shit
1. figure out how to write a good query letter (shit's bullshit hard)
2. go to a place like agentquery or querytracker and search for agents who represent your genre
3. go to agent's website and follow their submission guidelines

Good luck OP. Remember to post your published work here so we can ridicule it appropriately.

Google, man. If they charge you a reading fee you are doing it wrong.

For instance, the genre OP is writing.

thanks to everyone who replied with serious answers. read a few articles and researched a couple of agencies, both local and abroad. if i do score an agent and land a publishing deal, i guess i'll swing back around and give some details to help out, pay it forward and such. again, thanks for the help.
