WRITING: Getting a Literary Agent….

Written a book and want to query with an agent?  The email accompanying your book proposal should be short and simple – advice from Bookends Literary Agents in this 8 minute video.


All through February, Bookends Literary Agency will be giving advice on how to approach an agent with your manuscript – dos and don’ts.  (If you look at their Youtube Channel, there’s already a lot of sage advice there on the subject of submissions and the work which agents do, already.)

Great Metaphor

Jessica Faust (on the left in the picture above) gives a great way to understand what the agent wants to know right upfront – just like someone going into a bookstore, first they go to the genre of choice, then look for the titles to inspire and check out if it’s a hefty book or a quick read (your wordcount indicates this).
