JEFF HERMAN’S GUIDE TO BOOK PUBLISHERS, EDITORS & LITERARY AGENTS, 28TH EDITION

Who They Are, What They Want, How to Win Them Over

Lauded by new and veteran writers, publishing professionals, and critics alike, this is the authoritative guide for getting writing read, represented, and published. Jeff Herman, a highly successful literary agent, cuts through confusion and unlocks the doors that often seem locked. For each new edition Herman queries 175 of his fellow agents to present details that cannot be found anywhere else. Their fresh, quirky, and entertaining responses give readers the insights even veterans need to bypass gatekeepers, spot scams, and make work irresistibly publisher-friendly. Herman has sage advice on everything from the nuts-and-bolts of query letters, proposals, and agents, to overcoming “Ignored Writer Syndrome” and even “Post-Publication Depression.” He extensively profiles publishing conglomerates such as Hachette, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster, as well as independent and university presses. Best of all, Herman clearly delights in giving everyone access to the realization of their writing and publishing dreams.
