Agents: How to promote your books
Most of the published writers, especially literary works, are members of Frahlingen. Curtis Brown's Frahling Cathryn Summerhayes speaks to us about what she expects from a new author in aitch. And when should a novelist turn to an operative - should they complete their novel first?
Whether you're an adult or a child writer, for literary purposes it's always a good idea not only to complete your novel, but to rework it, get some readership (not your mother and father), and a redesign and redesign until you have the feeling that you've made it to the absolute best point you can reach without the help of an operative and/or editor.
Authors' first drafts are never released - and an agency really wants to get the feeling that you are diligent, have worked a long amount of times with your script, and are committed to doing it right. Why are you looking for a novelist who represents you? Singularity of vocals - don't tell me that you are the next JK Rowling, but be the best there is.
What should a novelist do to convey his work to a Frahlingen? Do you have a really good feeling for where your books will be on the shelf? Do you know the operative to whom you submit and do you research, e.g. by saying: "I thought you might like my work because I see that you are representing the character X"?
Is it Star Wars Meets Bridget Jones ? Also, really buff your "back of the book" descriptor of a few hundred words that you can put in your cover note. Ensure that your first page is KILLER so that you can mount the agents immediately.
You' d be surprised how often I see things like "I would go loving to be represented by United Agents" (I work for Curtis Brown). Slovenliness indicates that your work will be idle and that you may not be a good self-publisher, and that in the end you are not the best writer I can be.
My aim is to get a very clear feeling that the author is there because he likes to type, not because he sees pounds flash. Encyclopedias provided by the operative you're filing. Be sure to compose a note that will sing from the page - just as you hoped your own text would.
