Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents 2011, 21E: Who They Are! What They Want! How to Win Them Over! (Jeff Herman’s Guide … Editors, Publishers, and Literary Agents) is a must for any serious writer who wants to become a published author.
This book is more comprehensive than any other book that’s out on the market. It blows away the Children’s Writer’s and Illustrators Market book. With over 1000 pages of filled with the names of literary agents, independent U.S. presses, Canadian book publishers, publishing conglomerates, advice for writers, and much more. You’ll get your monies worth if you purchase this book!
I’m in the process of querying agents for my children’s book. I’m surprised that some agents still require writers to submit their query letters and manuscripts via ‘snail mail’ versus email. Perhaps, they’re overwhelmed with email submission and ‘snail mail’ submissions are easier to weed out. Whatever the case may be, you’ll find many literary agents within the pages of Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents 2011, 21E: Who They Are! What They Want! How to Win Them Over! Make sure you purchase enough postage stamps and follow the submission guidelines; otherwise you could receive a rejection letter because you didn’t follow instructions.
I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of Jeff’s book and must admit it’s a bit overwhelming but I’ll take my time and follow his advice on The Battle of the “UNS” — Unagented/Unsolicited Submissions. As he writes, “No one is born published. There is no published author who wasn’t at one time an UN.” Reading these words gives me hope and faith that I’ll see my dream come true of becoming a published author!
If you have a dream of becoming published, purchase Jeff’s book right now. It doesn’t cost that much and the money you spend today can make a world a difference tomorrow when you’re presented with a publishing contract. Good luck!
