I read a good post today from agent Jenny Bent. She was talking about the benefits of younger agents versus older agents. And what she said has totally changed my mind on this topic. As she said, younger agents can sell your book, too. They are willing to take more chances. They're ambitious, and they don't know as much about certain things as the older agents do. That makes them more willing to take a chance on a pre-pubbed writer such as myself. Older agents have a lot to offer, too. They know folks! Publishers, editors and those folks that we writers need for them to know. And if they're really good, they mentor the younger agents when they need it.
I guess what I am saying here is, it doesn't matter about age. Just like in life. There are advantages to both. I'll query 'em all. All of them that rep books like I am writing. Well, not all, but at least, hmm, twenty five of them. :) I'll work hard at this, because it is my DREAM, to sit down, with a cup of coffee, and read MY book! Oh yeah! :)
