Apologies. I (Chuck) met Kara, a new agent, at a recent writers' conference
in Sept. 2015 and made a note to profile her on here. But a keen reader just alerted me that
in the past few weeks Kara abruptly stopped agenting. She has a note about it here.
The point is 1) do not query Kara, though do examine the many cool agents at Corvisiero Lit,
and 2) apologies from me that this post had to be altered so quickly.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Kara Leigh Miller of Corvisiero Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.
