"I was at a point in my writing career where I began seriously looking for a literary agent to represent my work. I did a lot of research on my own, but after querying several agents, I still wasn’t making any progress. With so many agents to choose from, which one would “get” my work and champion it as I did? Then, I met Carrie. Carrie’s sound advice and wealth of knowledge help me journey through the ever-changing publishing industry. Her advice helped me navigate the process from start to finish, which I am thrilled to say led to an offer from a well-respected literary agency."

"I was in the unusual position of having a number of agents interested in my work. Carrie helped me hone in and view my choices both logically and intuitively. She has a calming sense about her, along with great experience and business savvy. She suggested great questions I hadn’t thought of, like how an agent handles submissions among clients. For example, does this agent submit more than one manuscript to an editor at a time? If not, how long might it take for your spot in queue to come up? She offered small but significant ideas that strengthened and personalized my queries. Carrie researched agents’ most recent sales and shared this important info with me. And she reminded me to be true to myself and find the agent with whom I had great chemistry. With Carrie’s help, the whole process felt less stressful and more joyful. Thank you so much, Carrie!"
