商品説明

You wrote a novel, and want to share it with the world. Where do you begin?


Submit / query your work cold turkey?


Wrong!


Begin with "DITCH THE AGENT - The Book for Writers". This no-nonsense book was written in response to hundreds of comments and questions from writers who are frustrated with, or clueless about the North American publishing industry. It answers the most pressing questions on every aspiring author's mind: from creating query letters, and approaching literary agents and editors, to submitting a manuscript, dealing with rejections, and finding contact information for those elusive editors. See the entire process, in-depth, from the perspective of a published author - an invaluable first-hand experience that will save you time and aggravation, and help secure a publishing deal with a traditional book-publishing house.


DITCH THE AGENT is intended for writers who seek to publish their work with traditional publishing houses, however, all writers are encouraged to read this book, including those who are toying with the idea of self-publishing.
