Abstract:

This volume looks at writing from the perspective of agents, editors, and publishers. It begins with a Q & A segment that spells out how to secure an agent. Moderated by agent Betsy Amster, the panel-BJ Robbins, Julie Barer, and Elyse Cheney-fields questions including What do you like to see in a query letter? and What is a good way to find the right agent? A panel featuring editors Ann Close and Joy Johannesson and publisher Michael Pietsch concludes the program. Questions in this segment range from the general-What makes a book sell?-to the very specific: How do you determine the advance amount an author receives?
