Many literary agents are checking out authors’ online platforms when they’re considering query letters. So your author website and social media accounts matter more in 2018 than ever before! Here’s what Writer’s Relief found that literary agent Jessica Faust from Bookends has to say:

In the same way they say Abraham Lincoln never would have been elected in the era of TV, readers, agents and editors no longer judge a book solely on the merits of the writing. They are also looking at marketing potential by reviewing an author’s social media, website and blogs.

It’s no different for me. Back in the day authors picked agents from a book, from a printed and outdated guide to literary agents. Now you are searching through Internet guides, reading reviews from other authors, reading this blog and getting a feel for me on Twitter. You have a pretty good idea of who I am and the kind of agent I’ll be before you even query.

Read more of Ms. Faust’s opinions on her blog.
