Literary Agents for first Time AuthorsFrahlingen for first authors
Here, too, there is a second point: all agents have to contact the same journalists (and a small heap of them: most of them are distributed to eight to twelve publishing houses in the first round of marketing). All agents search for a manuscript that meets a certain level of sophistication.
This sermon, as always, amounts to the first and second commandment to get a literary agent: You' re writing a good one. When you need help, get editing support wherever you can. It' a little bit simpler to get a less incumbent than a giant in the industry. This is not because the standard of workmanship is lower - it is not at all - but because a newer operative knows that he or she has to work more hard to make a schedule.
When you went to such an agents with a novel that is brilliant but incomplete, they may be well equipped to do the work that is necessary to repair it. If you have an agents with a longer mailing lists, you can (unfortunately) reject the work. When you want to find a frahling who really does welcome first authors instead of just accept them, you will do well to turn to those who haven't been in commerce that long - essentially, you are looking for young people or those who have come into the job from other areas of the game.
It' s not a sensible policy to just choose smaller ones, because (1) there are many one- and two-person agents who have been in the market for a long time and whose listings are already full. Even bigger agents all have new recruits starving to set up their ranks.
For larger agents it is okay to call the telephone exchange and ask for proposals as to which agents are suitable for a work. We do not have all the agents (or receptionists) who are able to help, but they are enough to make it worthwhile for you. In fact, it was good counsel from an offi ce desk clerk who encourages me to turn to the famous Frahlingen, who finally offered to write my first novel.
You are looking for an agents who love your books and believe they can be sold. Whether this is a young or reputable broker working for a large or small company, it doesn't make any difference. She, the ledger, the operative. Please use our guide pages for Frahlingen to find your way around. If your work is not taken over by the first fifteen agents, then consider editing feedbacks as an optional feature.
It' difficult to write a volume and few people get there on their first try.
