Looking at The World of Literary Agents
I came across this piece by Michael Bourne, “A Right Fit”: Navigating the World of Literary Agents,” in my RSS feed from Nathan Bransford’s Blog. You may have read similar pieces that looked at the world literary agents operate in, but this one is a little different. This one comes from a man who was on the outside and worked his way in, but still has to write that one book that an agent can sell. I liked the comment of the feedback writers typically receive from family and friends versus what one might receive from a total stranger. Not just any stranger but one who looks on your work as a product he or she might have to sell. But why read my synopsis? Head over to the link for the full piece here.
