Many agents, editors, bloggers, and books recommend researching agents before querying and even keeping track of what books are published where, etc. I understand putting effort into finding an agent that fits, especially if you are looking one for your career and not just one project. Publishing seems like a large and small business all at once, with imprints and job changes, how are you keeping track?

I have a simple Excel spreadsheet where I’ll add an agent I’ve read about and think would fit or needs additional research. There is also a Books tab with a list of my favorite titles, year of publication, publisher, editor (if I can find it), etc. Does anyone else have a system they’d like to share?
