Securing literary representation is a hell of a marathon. It’s rigorous, emotionally draining, and 99% interminable waiting. But here’s the good news: the only requirement is your own stubborn tenacity. Talent’s entirely learnable, and in this biz? You only fail if you quit.
So if inking a traditional book deal is your writerly goal, join us for an unflinching deep dive into the process of becoming agented. Knowing when you’re “ready” to pitch, query letters, synopses, strategies — we’re tackling all your questions, critiquing materials, and separating realistic expectations from discouraging myths.
P.J. Vernon is “a name to watch in the thriller genre” (Booklist). Library Journal and Book Riot compare his critically-acclaimed Gothic debut When You Find Me to Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects. Vernon’s next thriller, Bath Haus, pitched as “Gone Girl with gays and Grindr” is forthcoming from Doubleday US (2021). Vernon is represented by CookeMcDermid and United Talent Agency (film). He and his husband live in Canada.
