Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors & Literary Agents, 28th edition: Who They Are, What They Want, How to Win Them Over
Every writer and every wanna-be writer who doesn’t self-publish will face the challenge of looking for a literary agent to help them reach their goal of having a book published. When one gets to that point or thinks they are at that point, they would do well to get this book. It opens with advice and invaluable information for writers, such as how to write the perfect query letter or a great book proposal or even what problems one might face after one is published. The next two sections cover the big publishing conglomerates and small, independent publishers with really in-depth information. The fourth section is the real heart of the book and has very complete information on most of the literary agents out there — not just what they want but a raft of information from a thorough but tongue-in-cheek questionnaire the author, Jeff Herman, has sent out. The last section is about independent editors, what they do, how to choose one, how to avoid scams, and then then a long list of them with their experience. It even has a great glossary. If a writer can only buy one book, this is the one to get.
