What you need to know,
This review is from: Agents, Editors, and You: The Insider's Guide to Getting Your Book Published (Writer's Market Library) (Paperback)
This collection of articles tells writers what they need to know about many of the most important business aspects of writing a book: what agents do and don't do, how their tasks differ from those of editors, how to choose and attract the interest of an agent, and why you are likely to need one. Unlike many other books published on these subjects, this one discusses recent changes in publishing with bigger conglomerates and e-publishing. Readers will get answers to questions they didn't know enough to formulate, such as specific advice about approaching editors and agents, the value of an agent who belongs to AAR (including their not charging reading fees!), information on book promotion and who does it, and some of the issues involved in self-publishing.
The information here is current and clear.
