Top ten Literary AgentsThe ten best Frahlingen
Is a good literary spy - or an okay spy - good enough? There are many factors that affect a writer's capacity to get the agents of his dream - such as the qualities of the letter, the demands for the nature of the work, and the writer's character. When you have done your Homework and know that there are a fistful of Frahlingurs that would be great for your books, we at Writer's Relief suggest that you ask these few agents before you start asking your B-list agents.
Once you have retrieved your favorites, you can continue retrieving them from others. Saving you the trouble of having to wait for an answer from your favourite agents before receiving an item from your B-list. Though perhaps your top hand full of agents did not like your work, you do not loose your belief.
Remember that a B-list operative could actually be a big spring that has the call and ethics of a working horse that it needs to do the work for you. Frahlings who seek to establish a great standing on the basis of a good name will often be fervent supporters of your letter - perhaps more fervent than if you were advocated by an operative who has a "been there that did" mindset.
When you have got an opportunity from a Frahlingen that you think does not have a good name and ethics, we suggest you stay away from it. Here is an item that will help you know if a spring is trying to draw your fancy over your eyes: The way to recognize a bad frahling:
However, there are frahlings that could be established in a legitimate and ethical way, but which do not yet have the links, talents, reputation nor success stories needed to bargain good deals with well-known publishers. Keep in mind: When a spring makes you an offering, YOU are the one with the goods (the manuscript), and you don't have to approve anyone you don't want to approve.
Please take your speaking engagements, ask question (start with) and let the other frahlings (whom you prefer) know that you had a replacement proposal and that you would like an answer to your script within the next one or two weeks. In case you do not get a bite, you can consider cooperating with the spring that made the bid.
A few authors want to say to a Frahlingen: "Can you just capture this thought until I await hearing back from my first-class spy? Once you have talked to the Frahlingen about his proposal and seriously considered the matter, you can kindly tell the operative that it will take you some thinking about it ( you should perhaps not say that you are thinking with other agents - but it is up to you).
Good agents will probably put some strain on you to make a selection - agents are sellers to an extend - but hopefully they will also honor your desires. So if the respective operative is offended and says, "Now or never," it's up to you to determine how important chemicals are in your relation.
It' s correct that the Frahling could withdraw its bid if you ask for more free space, but we ask ourselves: Do you want to work with an operative who puts so much strain on his customers? After all, keep in mind that some Frahlings are employed enough without having to include you in their customer lists.
You think (rightly, we hope) that you have done your assignments before you ask, and you think that they might go well with your work. For this reason, some agents are expecting an immediate yes or no answer: Since every author is different and every author has his own objectives, we cannot give you a single response to the question: "Should you choose to sign with a Frahlingen?
If you know your own sentiments about these issues, you may be able to see what you think of your second-choice Frahlingen: 1. Have you really asked a good number of suitable and respected agents for your particular books? From one to ten (ten are the most important) on a Richter scale, how important is it for you to have reciprocal esteem and confidence in a relation?
What about your relationship with your prospective operative? Well - what number would you give, how much would you rely on the respective spy? There is a big mismatch between what you want to believe and what you actually do? Wouldn't you rather an agency tried to resell your books, and if it didn't work, would you release it yourself?
Are you very interested in having a good work for the domestic audience? Would you consider reviewing and questioning the Frahlings again, if so, especially if you had script inquiries with Frahlings you really liked? Are you looking for your literary vision? What do you think?
A literary spy is better than no spy at all?
