THE BEST RESOURCE AVAILABLE FOR FINDING A LITERARY AGENT

No matter what you're writing--fiction or nonfiction, books for adults or children--you need a literary agent to get the best book deal possible from a traditional publisher. Guide to Literary Agents 2016 is your essential resource for finding that literary agent and getting your book bought by the country's top publishers. Along with listing information for more than 1,000 literary agents who represent writers and their books, this new, updated edition of GLA includes:

  • A one-year subscription to the literary agents content on WritersMarket.com.*
  • Secrets to why agents stop reading your submission. Four literary agents review writers' unpublished first pages and give honest feedback. The agents examine 10 different first-page submissions and explain if and when they would stop reading.
  • "New Agent Spotlights"--profiles of literary reps actively building their client lists right now.
  • Success stories: 13 debut authors explain their paths to publication so you can learn from their success and see what they did right.
  • Answers to 19 frequently asked questions about query letters and submissions.
  • Informative how-to articles on synopsis writing, voice and craft, characters, platform and blogging, nonfiction book proposals, and more.
