Making the Perfect Pitch: Advice from 35 Top Book Agents Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A writer can have the wisdom of Frank McCourt, the imagination of J.K. Rowling, and the economy of Ernest Hemingway - but still needs to be able to pitch, query and propose before he or she can get published. This book will tell you. It offers sage advice and real-world savvy in a collection new articles from 45 top agents in the field who have represented countless bestselling authors - and turned away many thousands who didn't know how to pitch. Sands is a successful New York agent.

Book News Annotation:
