Trying to break into the Christian writing world? Fantastic.
You have your work cut out for you.
Study up on the publishing industry. Start thinking of your book as your business. In order to be successful, you need to know what readers want and know what the market is calling for.
Start following the top literary agents on Twitter (you should also consider following these Christian Literary Agents). Go to writers conferences and introduce yourself. Start a friendship. Tweet them. Read their blogs.
Read their blog. If you want to find out what’s going on in the world of Christian publishing, you should know what the agents are talking about.
These blogs will help you get an idea of what is going on in the CBA world, what you need to know before you pitch, and how to navigate the overwhelming world of publishing. Start commenting to start building relationships and getting involved in the conversation. It’s a great way to grow in your understanding of the industry.

- Hartline Literary Agency

Agents have specific submission guidelines. If you want a chance at getting signed, you must follow them.
Do not use the blogs as a way to sell yourself or market your books. Don’t pitch agents over social media, blogs, or by stalking them like prey at conferences. Don’t be that writer.
Your book is your business. Start doing the homework that will make you successful.
