Hello, I’m a Canadian writer, living in Canada and want to send out my query letters to agents in America. Can Canadians also have an American agent and get their books published in America? Thank you!

Hi Emily
Great to hear from you! YES, as a Canadian you can certainly query and sign with a US agent – and many Canadians choose to do just that. The USA and Canada invariably fall into the North American grant of rights that an agent will sell to a US publisher, so it makes a lot of sense.
Good luck and feel free to query me if you would like.
