Happy (Super Un/Official Top-Secret) Agent Day!

Today is Agent Appreciation Day!!

Never heard of Agent Day? That's because this is the inaugural year of the holiday organized by YA Highway's very own Kody Keplinger, 18-year-old author of THE DUFF (Poppy, fall 2010) . She rallied as many YA authors as possible, and the idea quickly went viral. This morning, dozens of authors have participated in Kody's idea: spreading agent love via top-secret testimonials published first thing today.

Lisa and Laura Roecker, authors of THE HAUNTING OF PEMBERLY BROWN (Sourcebooks, 2011) were nice enough to round up all the posts threought the day. You can read all the Agent Day posts by clicking the link below:

If you have an agent, hurry to your blog and participate! If not, this is a fantastic way to find the best agents out there and update your query list.

Thank you, agents, for being our advocates in a tough industry. We truly appreciate your hard work.
