As I've said, I'm looking for a an Agent who's looking for stories in the genre of horror. The Novel that I'm wanting to submit has parts that are fantasy but is still mostly horror. And actually it also has a bit of scifi in it too. So I don't really know what to call it. I do know that most of my stories will be in Horror though. I'm unpublished and this would be my first attempt at so. I've already searched for horror and I've found nothing as of yet. I'd really appreciate any help from anyone who has any idea about any agents that'd be good for me to submit my novel to. I've already obtained the copyright, so I now feel safe enough to begin submitting it to a legitimate agent. Also if there's any sort of groups that I may need to join. Anything at all will be appreciated. Once again, I thank you for your help.

Since this isn't a question about a specific agent, I've moved it from Bewares to Ask the Agent.

There's a stickied thread on the front page of this forum that should provide you with some good resources for finding answers to your questions.

If you go to agentquery.com and put horror into the search criteria you will get 41 agents who are currently accepting queries

Oh and you didn't need to obtain copyright

yeah... but I want my story. And I love it and I'm really fucking paranoid. I mean really paranoid. So I was worried about someone stealing something from me.

Your manuscript won't be stolen. Theft of unpublished work is so rare that you really don't need to worry about it. A good agent or publisher won't risk his reputation by stealing; a bad agent or publisher isn't interested in your manuscript, only in your money. Of all the things a new writer needs to be concerned about, theft really is at the bottom of the list.

For more information on copyright, and why there's no need to register copyright for unpublished work, see the Copyright page (http://www.sfwa.org/beware/copyright.html) of Writer Beware.
