How to Find an Agent for Your Novel


Five Steps You Should Take to Sign With a Literary Agent!

So it might have taken you months or even years to complete your manuscript. You’ve revised it time and time again.

Others’ feedback will open your eyes to glaring problems in your plot, characters, and pacing that you might not have even thought about.
