Pakistani fiction writer - any hope for finding an agent?

Postby Subtlygold » Mon Jul 07, 2014 6:03 am

So I'm a Pakistani English fiction writer, and in my country nobody really acknowledges English fiction. Urdu being our first language is read and published here. So after a long hunt for possible publications in my country, I found none that published English novels. There was one publishers that did publish English novels but only traditional subcontinental related ones. But I write Sci-fi and Young adult that does not relate in any way to the traditions of the subcontinent.
So now I decided to search for an agent that can connect me to a publishing house in UK and USA, but I'm not sure if agents accept clients outside their countries. Because obviously I won't ever be able to meet the agent in real life.
So is there any chance for me to become published and find an agent abroad?

of course it's possible, as it's often been done...

but, as paul notes, your writing must be professional level, your english fluent and idiomatic... it all depends on writing an effective query letter and getting it to agents who are open to taking on new clients in your book's genre...

i have agent listings for the US and other parts of the english-speaking world that i'm always happy to pass on... so just send me an email if you'd like to have them...

love and hugs, maia

Thank you. It's a relief to hear that. I'll remember to ask you for the agent finding process once my manuscript is complete :)

Yes, i have been searching for agents on query tracker. But there are so many agents there, it's hard to filter them out.

As Paul said, feel free to post your query in the query forum.

I'd be glad to tear it apart (in a good way). :mrgreen:

Okay thanks guys. But first I think, I should focus on editing and completing my manuscript before I really begin the search.
