Too many pages are spent telling a beginning writer how to write good fiction. If you don't know that, you shouldn't be looking for an agent.
A few very good pages on how to structure a query to catch an agent's attention. Probably worth the cost of the book, along with a listing of agents and what type of manuscripts they will look at.
You do not need to reference this book old school style anymore!! I am all for printed books ok but not in this case. In this case about 85% of all agents and publishers now accept Email queries and submissions and EVERY agency has a website. The wonderful thing about digital download of this book is that you have ALL of those email addresses and websites at your fingertips!! Do you know what that means?? It means that what once took weeks at Kinkos with copies and snail mail can now be done in one ambitious weekend or less.
I have my entire package saved on my laptop. I have files with the first 50 pages of each of my novels. I have their query letters, synopsis and outlines all ready to go. I have full completed copies of each of my novels as well. All I have to do is go alphabetically through this book, copy the email, the agency address and attach what each one requires and hit send. That's it. That's all and you can contact EVERY single agent in this book in record time!!!!!! Never before has it been so easy to land an agent.
I have Amazon to thank for making this so easy. You can buy these downloads for $15 and there's other guides too that you can do this with and increase your odds really fast of landing an agent. This is the most useful money well spent option ever created for writers. Download this. Don't buy the physical book and spend hours trying to read its small font and figuring out if you've sent to the right email address. You can link up to the website from the download and some of them have formats of their own you just attach your work to it and that's it.
I have it on both my Ipad and Laptop so when I'm ultra lazy at night watching TV, I can be productive at the same time and querying my book agents on my IPAD if I don't want to get my laptop out. I can't express enough how happy I am and how this feature has saved my life, my time and I'm no math person but I must be cutting the time down by 98%, because it's just so fast and clear. The font is large and there's no room for mistake on the download. It's so easy I feel like I've done nothing when in fact, I've done more than most people to promote my work in just a few hours time as opposed to WEEKS. I remember those old Kinkos days and I never want to see them again !! Now I don't have to !! Thank you Amazon for letting us non Kindle users buy your downloads with your reader App. It took 2 seconds to install. And the book transfer was instant. Thank you.!!!!
Go out there writers and take no prisoners! Your day of excuses is over! You have the ultimate weapon now! NYC beware!!
