I went to the bookstore last week and went through the Writer’s Market Guide in order to put together a list of literary agents that accept fantasy submissions, as well as some historical fiction. I wanted to pass this list along to any who are interested:

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine,, and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. It’s been almost a year since the last comment, but I wanted you to know this is still helping people! I just went through the entire list and found several to query regarding my unpublished “epic tale”…


  2. Thank you so much for this comprehensive list of agents. It really was a God-send. I am an aspiring writer and had no idea where to begin when trying to locate an appropriate agent.
    Again thank you for taking the time to compile such a list for us novice writers.
