How to be Your Own Literary Agent: The Business of Getting a Book Published
Houghton Mifflin Company, 1996 - 285 من الصفحات
HOW TO BE YOUR OWN LITERARY AGENT is the most practical and thorough guide to book publishing for writers. Richard Curtis, a top literary agent for more than twenty-five years, provides a comprehensive overview of the publishing process, from submissions to contract negotiations to subsidiary rights to marketing and beyond. In this completely revised and expanded edition, Curtis takes into account the enormous changes in the publishing world over the past ten years.
Included are new sections on what the electronic revolution means to you, and how to take advantage of it; the new breed of literary agents: how to find them and interest them in your work; how you can have a say in your book's design, cover art, jacket copy, and promotion; what author and agent organizations can do for you; how book chains and the superstores affect your chances of getting published; and why the American Booksellers Association convention is important to you. No other book provides such detailed and accessible information. For novices and veteran writers alike, HOW TO BE YOUR OWN LITERARY AGENT takes the mystery out of getting the best deal possible and ensuring happy publication.
