Writers' Resources
"Selling your book or script and securing a good contract often requires more than persistence and a good attitude--you need an agent. The 2008 Guide to Literary Agents is your essential resource for finding that agent...and getting your writing published." (from back cover of book)
"Writers, agents, and editors all agree that Herman's Guide is the must-have go-to reference for everyone who writes. This book will get you past the slush piles and into the hands of the people who have the power to publish. You will learn the names and contact information for hundreds of agents and editors, and will be given the 'code' for how to win them over." (from back cover)
