Literary Agents List – Tip

Did you know that most authors try to get published the wrong way? You see, many authors don’t fail to get a literary agent because they’re untalented writers or don’t have publishable books. They fail because they’re “shooting at the wrong target.” The best way for me to illustrate this point is to explain how top literary agents sell books to publishers (because that’s the process you need to model). Click here to discover what you need to think (and do) when compiling your literary agents list. This is the second part of our 2-part Guide to Creating Your List of Literary Agents.

"Mark helped me get five different offers for representation from top literary agents. I signed with Stephanie Tade who got me a 6-figure book deal with Penguin Books, which published my book in hardcover! When Stephanie first contacted me, she was very excited and said, ‘I can’t get your book proposal out of my head. It’s brilliant – I mean, really, it’s fantastic. Editors should be salivating by the time they get to the chapter outline.’ Working with Mark was completely worth it." [Click here to see all Mark Malatesta reviews]
