Conferences such as Love Is Murder are a great way for authors to meet agents. Often they end up in business together. In my own case, in 2004, I was a speaker at LIM. Looking for a new agent, I crossed paths with Miriam Goderich from Dystel/Goderich Literary Management. She gave a one-hour talk about agents and how the D/G agency worked. I talked to her further and eventually asked D/G to represent me.
