Common Questions about Agents & Publishers

Q:  Do I really need a literary agent?

If you are going the traditional publishing route, absolutely.
 First, let me say that there is no advantage whatsoever for me, personally, to advise you to use a literary agent to represent your work.   The only reason I recommend that you, as an author, have an agent is simply because that today’s environment, I sincerely believe it is in your  best interest to have one.
As you probably know,  many of the larger publishers will not accept submissions from unagented writers.  However, even if such publishers were anxious to get their hands on manuscripts from such writers, there are several reasons that it is wise to have an agent.
