I read an article yesterday on how women dominated the world of publishing in the USA so did a little research on agents. I selected a few pages from querytracker.com and checked the names of agents in both the UK and USA. It produced a quite amazing figure. Over 80% of agents are women!. Given that women are more likely to like women's writing I wonder if us blokes have much chance of finding an agent. It seems this is one area of life where women are not discriminated against and good luck to them but it may be just one more reason to consider the self-publishing route. Either that or write Romance under a pseudonym.
