Pick an Agent's Brain! (Not Literally- That Would Be Kind of Gross)

I'm pretty excited because on Saturday I'm going to have a 15 minute chat with literary agent Mark McVeigh. Thank you so very much to everyone who joined his blog because of my little post- gracias, merci, danke!

I have a few questions I want to ask Mark myself, but I also wanted to see if there were any questions any of you would ask him. I've got 15 minutes and plan to use all of them!

So, if you have any agent-y questions you'd like me to add to the list, post them to the comments and I'll make sure to squeeze them into the conversation. I promise to report back with his answers!

I'm excited for you!!! I have no idea what I would want to know that you wouldn't already ask... but now I want to know what your question list is :)

Shaved head, or au natural? J/J :) -- I'm always curious about what's trending at any given time, but that's something some agents address in their blogs.

Yay! I'm so excited for you. I can't really think of anything at the moment but I'll report back if something comes to me.

If you're not already planning to ask him -- I'm kind of wondering how important word count really is for the particular genre. Like, will he not even consider a story if it's above a certain word count or does a strong concept trump everything?

What a great opportunity! In my brief interaction with him (and from all I've read), he seems like a really great guy with broad interests.

All the best.

Yay! I can't wait to see what you find out! I don't have any questions, but I do have an award for you at my blog!!

Congrats, Stephanie! How exciting! Like Matthew, I wonder about word counts. There is so much conflicting advice out there.

And on a completely unrelated topic... When you get a moment, could you pop by my blog and let me know where you heard about the Whoops! Blogfest? I'd promised a prize to my best shout-out helper, but I can't figure out who to thank. Gracias!

Very cool. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

So exciting! I don't really have any questions, though. Just wanted to say good luck and have fun!
