Will 2012 Be the Year to Find an Agent?

As a new author, I often hear, "You need to find an agent or you won't be able to get your foot in the door."

I am not sure if this is true or not.  Sometimes when looking at agent submission requirements it says that they won't even entertain an author's work if not previously published.

A big Catch 22!

You can't get published without and agent, but an agent won't represent you if you haven't been published.

What to do?

Here is an amazing article with great advice on how to find an agent that is right for you.  I hope that you find the article helpful.  I certainly plan to use it as a guide in my own journey to find an agent.
