Agent Friday: Amanda Luedecke

I haven't done an Agent Friday post in a while, mostly because I ran out of blogging agents. I was looking into Amanda Luedecke, a new agent with MacGregor Literary, since she'll be attending the Pikes Peak Writer's Conference next week, and I found she does have quite a few articles online. 

Luedecke represents literary fiction, YA, romance, women’s fiction, science fiction, fantasy, horror, steampunk, African American fiction, middle grade fiction, nonfiction, and Christian non-fiction/fiction.

Here's a sampling of some of her posts:

Does an MFA matter?  Should you spend the money and time?

10 marks of a new writer Are you guilty of any of these? 

Social Media
Luedecke's surprising thoughts on authors using Twitter: who's doing well and who's missing the mark. Also check out How to Write a Great Tweet and Why Authors Should Be On Twitter.




And here's an interview on Chiseled in Rock, where Luedecke talks about the trends she's seeing in publishing, and what may be the next big thing.

How important is social media in your writing life?


  1. What a great lists of links...oh for the time to read them all! But, I will bookmark them for later... I am involved in the A to Z Blogging Challenge, and balance Twitter with my Facebook account. I'm building my platform one day at a time. Thanks for the post!

  2. I've enjoyed reading some of her posts. I'll have to see if I missed any of the links you mentioned. See you next week!

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Debbie. I was already hoping to meet Amanda next week at the conference, but after reading through her posts, I'm even more excited. She has a lot of really helpful information for authors, and I'll definitely be taking her advice.

  4. @Jarm: I hope you get to browse through them. I'm glad I've got them collected here.

    @Stacy: Can't wait to see you next week, too!

    @Evangeline: We'll have to make sure you get some time with her. I'm picking her up at the airport, and I'm looking forward to getting to know her better. She sounds like she'd be right up your alley!


  5. Thanks for all the great links! Wish I could go to the Pikes Peak Conference :)

  6. I wish you could be there, too! I'll try to post some of what I learn.
