Do be aware that phony "agents" may have ads lurking closer than you think. Do do due diligence. Beware of do do. "Writer beware" makes a good search starter.
For just one example of how these guides might be effective, I believe that my client Cara Lockwood found us through this book. I've placed many books for her since and also a made a movie deal with Lifetime (I DO BUT I DONT stars Dean Caine and Denise Richards.)
Anyway, I felt that a personal testimonial from an agent's perspective might help--I think this guide is worth the money, and although not every listing is fully current, the benefits here far outweigh any criticisms.
The agents and publishers reveal not only what they're looking for in submitted work, but also in the writers they hope to represent. Small interviews with the agents and publishers, if read, will greatly increase your chances of finding an agency (or publishing house) willing to look at your work.
I'm not sure when I'll next be looking for an agent or a publisher, but when I do, if my version is outdated I'll be buying the new one.Homefront
