Is my age a factor--and how to land an agent?

"Dear Mr. Lukeman, I am an underage author, I'm 12 years old. I'm writing a book called The Blessed and I am not yet finished, but I would like to start studying up how to get an agent--any words of advice? I just really need to know if my age will be an asset or a turnoff to literary agents and any you would suggest...? Thanks. -Anonymous "

I salute you for starting so early and being so ambitious. Keep up the good work, and whatever you do, don't give up, and eventually, you will make it.

First, several other young authors have asked a similar question regarding their age on this blog. I have responded to it in depth numerous times. Please read the response in all the blog posts here, and please read all posts going back to the beginning. That will also help you with landing an agent.

Second, I wrote two books--which I give away for free--HOW TO WRITE A GREAT QUERY LETTER and HOW TO LAND (AND KEEP) A LITERARY AGENT, which contain hundreds of pages of detailed information and advice that will help you land an agent. To download them for free, visit
