Literary Agents -- Do You or Don't You Use One? Show 1-24-2013


Do you go the traditional publishing route … and if you choose to, who should be, will be, your guide and advocate? Even if you publish your own books … there just might be the day when a switch possibility comes your way. This program is all about everything you need to know but didn’t know what to ask when it comes to working with and getting a literary agent.  


  • What do you do?
  • How do you do it?
  • What do you say?
  • Where do you get help?
  • What does an agent do?
  • What do they get paid?
  • What do you do if you feel you have the wrong one?


Answers will be here with Mark Malatesta—the Literary Agent Undercover—who became an agent when he couldn't get an agent to rep his first book. 

Another lively hour on Your Guide to Book Publishing with Dr. Judith Briles at 6 pm EST, author of Show Me About Book Publishing and Author YOU: Creating and Building Your Author and Book Platforms.
