Well, today's our lucky day at Absolute Write, because agent Nathan Bransford has just joined us and volunteered to answer questions. Here's his bio as it appears on his blog:

I'm a literary agent with the San Francisco office of Curtis Brown Ltd., a New York based agency that has been representing writers since 1914. I'm particularly interested in literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, sports, politics, current events, young adult fiction, science fiction and anything else I happen to like! I'm afraid I do not represent poetry. If you are interested in submitting a project for representation, please e-mail me a letter describing your project at [email protected]. No attachments, please. Thanks, and best of luck with your search for representation!
Curtis Brown is a dream agency for many writers, so I'm sure Nathan is about to become a very popular guest around these parts.

You can find him at MySpace here: http://www.myspace.com/nathanbransford

If you have questions for Nathan, please go right ahead and post them. He's going to try to be a regular around these parts (bless his soul) and will answer whatever he can.

PLEASE NOTE: Writers, please don't answer questions that are meant for Nathan. That sometimes happens on these threads and it gets confusing... let's let our guest answer for himself. Thanks!
