Welcome to the Darley Anderson Blog

Hello everyone,

We would like to officially welcome you to the Darley Anderson Blog!

Are you excited? We are. We’ve never had a blog before.

To begin with we thought it was only right that we properly introduce ourselves. Over the course of the next two weeks we will be doing just that in a feature we’re calling ‘Getting to Know Us’. Everyone on the Darley Anderson team will be answering five incredibly probing questions about themselves and we’ll be starting with Vicki Le Feuvre, our sparkling and brilliant Agency Editor. For any aspiring writers out there we would really like to speak to you in particular. We will be posting advice tailor-made for you, to help with your writing as well as familiarising you with the sometimes intimidating process of submitting your work to literary agents. We will also be using this blog to let you know exactly what submissions we are looking for and what books we most love to read.

Over the coming weeks we will be focusing on the often dreaded covering letter. It strikes us that writing a covering letter for a submission may well be one of the most challenging writing exercises known to man. If you are having any trouble or just want a few useful tips this is the place to come. We will be giving you weekly snippets of advice to help you get started filling that blank page with the right words to get us as excited about your work as you are.

Also be sure to keep a weather eye out for the exclusive giveaways we have planned for you very soon.

So that was our first blog entry. I hope you liked it.

But enough about us, what about you? Is there a question you would like to ask us? If there is, leave a comment or email a question to assistant@darleyanderson.com

    Fantastic! Looking forward to reading more. Although wish I hadn’t already submitted my work to you, I fear I am about to learn all the things I did wrong…

  2. Great idea! If I promise to follow you dilligently (and act on all your advice), does that mean you’d consider being my agent?!

    Hello! Great news. Good luck with the undertaking! I’m more interested in your Children’s Book side of things – and finding out what you are looking for.
