Let’s Talk About Agent Hunter!

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how to get your book published without an agent. In it I discussed how to look for an agent first using The Writer’s and Artist’s Year Book. Since writing that post, I have discovered an amazing site called Agent Hunter. I was going to write about it in my own words, but I think they say much better than I do.
Agent Hunter is a completely searchable database of UK based agents and publishers. We’ve been working with the agents directly and the level of information you will find here is unparalleled. There has never been a resource like this before. You can find the right agents for your work and along with contact details, you will find comprehensive information about them, including their personal tastes and advice along with links to their twitter feeds and relevant online articles about or by them. And you’ll also find a wealth of advice on the site to guide you through the whole process of seeking representation – all of the things you will need to consider before you start, exactly how to go about doing it and what you might expect.
Register & subscribe Just go to www.AgentHunter.co.uk. Once there, follow the simple instructions to register. It costs just £12 for a year's subscription.
There is nothing like Agent Hunter in the world and it is, quite simply, the best course of action you can take when you feel you have a manuscript which is ready to be viewed commercially.
Agent Hunter is the brainchild of crime novelist Harry Bingham, who also created and runs The Writers' Workshop - the UK's largest literary editorial agency.
Intrigued now aren’t you! I was intrigued enough to join and I hope to  find this sight very useful. If you would like to know more about the site, please click on the links above.
I hope to write future posts about how useful this site is at helping me to hopefully find an agent in the near future.


  1. Excellent and informative post, good luck finding an agent and look forward to hearing all about it honey x

  2. Good luck Vivienne!
    I think Authoright are doing something similar, launching at the London Book Fair.
    It's called LitFactor (http://www.litfactor.com/) - not sure if it's any good, or how much it costs, but defo worth a look.

    Look forward to hearing hoe you get on with Agent Hunter,

    Best wishes,
