Get Published Episode 143 – Agent Talk with Michael R. Fletcher

A topic of interest for many writers, myself included, is that of getting an agent. How do you find an agent? How do you properly query agents and what should you expect from the process. These are all questions that have run through my mind many times.

So when I heard the great news that Michael R. Fletcher had signed with an agent, I knew I had to talk to him. We had a great conversation about what he did to get an agent and what he is hoping to gain from the relationship.

And, as always, I would like to invite you to leave me any comments, questions, tips or any other feedback you might have.

And before we begin the show, I would like to remind you that if you have any questions or comments, you can send them to If I don’t know the answer to your question, I will find the person best suited to answer it and play it on the show.

Happy Holidays everyone!
