Immediately upon reading this book you realize you are in the presence of a very knowledgeable author and caring literary agent who really does want the best for you. This book is very exciting as you think of the possibilities of applying Noah Lukeman's wisdom. "How to Land (and Keep) a Literary Agent delivers on its promise.
There is lots to enjoy in this book, especially the parts about exactly what it is like to work with a serious agent. There are a wealth of excellent ideas to also build up your credentials so people will take notice of your talents. Literary agents do want to know that you have a willing audience ready to buy your book.
So this book teaches you how to be a detective and find the right literary agent. Then it also teaches you how to approach the agent with a great query letter.
I found this book to be one of the most helpful books for authors. Noah Lukeman writes with a sense of clarity and authority and will give you the confidence you need to get out into the world and change it for the better with the gift of your book. Who doesn't dream of success as an author? With this book you have a much better chance of being published professionally.
~The Rebecca Review
The only reason I did not give this book five stars is that it has several grammatical errors. If this book were updated, re-edited, repackaged and rereleased, it would sell very well. It is not that it is dated, it's just that it was written in 2009. I hesitate to make these suggestions because I do not want to sound critical. (Actually what I would like to see this book available in its best form because it can be a great help to many people who struggle to understand the agent/book publishing process.)
I honestly do not know of any important subject that Mr. Lukeman left out.
Thank you for your help, Mr. Lukeman. I am now going to read your book, How to Write a Great Query Letter. I look forward to learning the correct way to write a query letter (after having written so many of them the wrong way despite the fact that I read countless books on how to write them!).
Please continue to help people with your "how-to" writing. You have a gift for writing to others instructively and constructively---in such a way as to help them understand processes that are not easily grasped. There are not many people who can do that.
