Agent Harold Baer is Looking for Writers!

As aspiring authors, it's exciting to learn about new agents who are actually looking for clients! I was blessed to interview Mr. Harold Lyon Baer about his unique practices that are sure to escalate him to the top of the publishing world.

Joyce: It's always interesting to know what people do before becoming agents. I mean, have you always been a part of the book world?

Harry: When I was young, I traveled a lot. In fact, I was part of an expedition in the Arctic Circle. During that time period, we did a lot of hunting and ice fishing.

Joyce: Really? That's fascinating. So tell me Harry, what sort of books are you interested in?

Harry: I love books about animals! I especially love the Berenstain Bears.

Joyce: Well, who doesn't? So you're interested in picture books?

Harry: Picture Books, Middle Grade, YA--anything will float with me. Listen, Joyce. I need to cut this interview short. My wife's calling. You know, the cubs are getting restless. But please have your readers call me if they'd like to give me a pitch about their books.

Joyce: Wait a minute? No query letter? Just a phone call?

Harry: Sure. I like to get to know potential clients. If they turn out to be like honey, we just might gel.

Joyce: You sure are a rare species, Harry!

Harry: That's what they keep telling me. Please tell your readers that I'm located at:

64th Street and Fifth Avenue
New York, New York 10021

Come visit or call (212) 439-6500 and ask for Harry Baer. Also, if anyone is interested in knowing more about me, here's my website:

Thanks, Harry!

A is for Agent! Tune in tomorrow to read about letter B -- Hmm? Beer, Barbecues, Babies -- Are you curious enough to click?

What company is he with?? and the comment about cubs was funny because the entrance to the zoo is at 64th and 5th

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Just call? That's so easy.

The zoo is at 64 and 5th? What an odd coincidence. Thanks for the comments, and I hope no one aroused the hairy bear from his sleep. He can be a bit grumpy when disturbed.

Am I losing it?
Cannot find your Twitter button to link it to you out there in the big blogosphere for Time travel ...
or am i just old.
Also entirely possible ;)

The Sisters' Hood said...

and for the love of God, take off the captcha!
Please ;)

Thanks for stopping by. I don't have a link to follow me on twitter here, but if you want to follow me, I'm: Joyce_Lansky. The button is temporarily out of service. I've had others ask me to take the captcha off, but I've been reluctant to do it because I don't want spammy comments. Let me hear from those without captcha. Do you get a lot of junk comments?

The Sisters' Hood said...

Actually i had so little spam when i was on Bloggger - WP seems to get a load.
You just find a lot of people leave a comment, click away and don't realise the captcha even came up - and your comment love goes away :(

Catch My Words said...

Why would comment luv go away? I'll try it. If I get a lot of spam, it goes back up.
