Hi Shannon,
Nice to connect with you too! I'd say making sure you've research the agent to make sure they take the type of work that you write is a start. Second would be to follow their guidelines for submission (if you don't, it's a red flag) and wr See Full Answer

“Patricia could see Remy dead. Her perfect corpse floating face down in the Oaxacan tiled infinity pool, her flawless stomach distended with decomposition gases, eyes fixed and dilated.”
Shannon Bradley-Colleary, Married Sex: Fact and Fiction

“Nineteen ninety-eight was a banner year for Connie. She was separately invited by two male former college friends to participate in an ménage à trois with them and their wives, despite her overbite and diminutive breasts.”

“She stood with flaccid breasts, somehow still full of herself.”

“I was least attractive at age thirteen. Puberty ensnared me in its sebaceous, cysty grip. I was too skinny, my face hadn’t grown into my teeth and my hair resembled a Brillo pad. I outgrew Thirteen, but she lives on inside me like a succubus ever draining me of my joie de vivre. There is no way in fucking hell I’m a Suicide Blonde dancing for INXS on that list.”
Shannon Bradley-Colleary, Smash, Crash and Burn: Tales From The Edge Of Celebrity

“Henry's also an insomniac. He suffers from Restless Leg Syndrome. I feel the sheets twitching as his legs move restlessly and think about how incredibly bourgeois we are, with our Sur La Table kitchenware, our Sundance catalogue lamps, our upper-middle class insomnia. Why can't we sleep, I wonder? We have enough to eat, we have a roof over our heads, we're not living in a mud hut sporting a thatch of gnarled leaves that barely cover our genitalia. I'm filled with self-loathing.”

Shannon Bradley-Colleary Hi Guys -- I have 2 New #bookreviews on "Married Sex: Fact & Fiction" for those of you who have read it, I'd love more! And for those of you who haven't read it, it costs less than a Starbucks Tall Latte.

If you buy and review I will NOT give you any sexual favors. Otherwise lock your doors and windows. You can just ask Henry, or his shadow side Michael Colleary, how terrifying my sexual favors can be.

Shannon Bradley-Colleary My first reviews are coming in for "Married Sex: Fact & Fiction" on Amazon. Both are 5 Stars and I don't even personally know the readers!!

ArtsLuv1 writes: "Funny, inspirational, even somewhat enlightening! Women, do yourselves a favor, grab your favorite ice cream and dive into this book. Laugh out loud, shake your head and everywhere in between. You'll thank me later."

and nvmom writes: "I am a huge fan of Shannon's columns, so when she released a book, I knew I was going to love it! Shannon has this way of taking her real life experiences, and making them absolutely hilarious for the rest of us. This book is so relate-able, at the same time being laugh out loud funny! After being a follower of website, The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful, I had high expectations for this book. It exceeded my expectations, and I recommend this book highly."
