Get an agent or publisher
Need help getting an agent? It starts with a great query letter. I will help you assemble all the elements of a great query—synopsis, writer's bio, genre, word count and more. Then I select dozens of potential leads, and send out queries on your behalf. It generally takes several rounds of correspondence before an agent makes an offer, and I will handle it all, under your supervision, to make sure everything is handled correctly and professionally. These days, when some agents do not respond at all (not even with an automated reply) my response rate is around 85%. I also handle nonfiction book proposals and pitches directed to publishers.
Every service comes with a confidentiality agreement. Your intellectual property is protected.
