About the Book

More than 90% of publishing attempts meet rejection. A published author myself, I founded GetPublished to help aspiring and ascending authors beat the odds and get published. Now, I'm providing you the results of my years of experience, research and consultation for the price of just minutes of my time.

------

Most authors are thrilled when an agent offers to represent them. However, did you know that:

------

-Having the wrong agent can do more harm than having no agent? Let me show you how to research an agent's track record to avoid damaging your literary career.
-Most of the top agents aren't listed in any guides? I'll direct you to the top sellers and tell you how to interview them before signing a contract.
-A personal introduction is the hands-down best way to meet an agent? I'll share with you the best ways I know to get ANY agent's attention. I'll even supply the letters.

------

Plus MUCH more. Because I'm doing less direct client service these days, I want to pass on everything I've learned. So I'll also reveal:

------

Names of 270 agents with solid media reputations, PLUS the numbers of actual sales on record. 26
Results of exclusive interviews with editors at major publishing houses who say how agent reputation affects how they view submissions. 35
Eight questions to ask an agent who expresses interest in representing you. 67
Why writers conferences may not be worth your time, energy and money spent to find an agent. 71

------

I'll be honest with you, some agents are not thrilled about this guide. Why? Because it puts YOU, the author, in the driver's seat, which is where they would rather be. Also, some agents are miffed that I want to you to research their records so thoroughly.

------

Personally, I think we as authors deserve to know something about the people to whom we propose entrusting so much of our life's work.

------

Here's what some industry professionals with author interests in mind have said about this guide you may be about to own:

------

"As a marketing strategist and media coach, I work with best-selling authors who get six-figure advances. Such publishing success stories require the right agents to create those happy endings. Jill's book is filled with the brilliant tips and techniques you need to find the right agent, and weed out the wrong ones. You won't find this sorely needed advice anywhere else. Don't wait...buy it as an investment in your future as a blockbuster author."
- Susan Harrow, author of Sell Yourself without Selling Your Soul (HarperCollins)

------

"Agents develop track records for certain categories of books. You must match your book to the right agent for that book. Then you will contact someone who wants to talk to you, recognizes what you are writing about and knows where to sell it. This book has your plan."
-Dan Poynter, author of The Self-Publishing Manual
