Every author needs the help of someone who knows the business inside and out. Finding the right publisher for your book can be extremely difficult without the right connections.
You need someone who can help tailor your proposal and target editors and publishers who are the best potential fits for your project. And that’s just the beginning….
There’s more to a book deal than simply getting a publisher interested in you and your work. Once offers are made, you need to know the difference between a good offer and a bad offer…and how to negotiate the best deal, which goes far deeper than money.
Relationships between authors and publishers can be complex, and publishing contracts can be very hard to understand. You cannot overlook the benefit that a well-connected agent and seasoned contract negotiator brings to the table.
In short, you need a friend and partner looking out for your interests.
