The Insider's Guide to Getting an Agent
In today's changing publishing world, getting an agent is crucial to getting published-but where do aspiring writers begin? New York literary agent, Lori Perkins, takes the mystery out of finding and keeping the right agent. Perkins simplifies the industry, explaining the role of literary agents and what writers should and should not expect. She then guides writers through researching and contacting an agent, including advice for writing agent queries, proposals, synopses, outlines, cover letters and follow-up correspondence. Throughout, Perkins keeps writers keenly aware of an agent's needs and goals, so they can communicate effectively and benefit more from the agent/client relationship. Writers will also gain helpful knowledge on everything from contracts and editors to subrights and promotions, and Perkins also provides a thorough checklist to help writers assess their efforts and chart their careers.
