“Do read this book, which should teach you pretty much everything you’ll need to know.”

Katharine Sands, a NYC literary agent with the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency, brings together sage advice from more than 40 literary agents representing bestselling and prize-winning authors of fiction and nonfiction.

This book will help you:
• Identify selling points & hooks.

• Pitch via email or verbally at conferences.
• Avoid pet peeves of busy agents.
• Understand how to present your writing credentials or author platform.

This diverse collection highlights both the commonalities and diverse perspectives of individual literary agents. Writers will quickly learn to understand the human element involved in the literary profession, while seeing the need to communicate clearly and confidently the core business requirements needed for any book manuscript or proposal that will be successful in the marketplace.
