Scott Dominic Carpenter featured at Writer’s Digest

Scott was featured in the Writer’s Digest ongoing column “How I Got My Agent,” where he talks, among other things, about his experience as an author and the path to getting published:

“This was unthinkable. Why couldn’t they see my brilliance? Then, as I did the math, I realized that 200 agents is a small number. You could burn through that list in a hurry if you’re not careful. So I stopped sending queries and returned to polishing my manuscript. I reworked my blurb. I had friends scrutinize my query letter. Finally I understood: if I couldn’t hold an agent’s attention through three short paragraphs, I was never going to get my prose in front of normal readers.”
