Every writer wants an agent. Someone to take their cause, fight their fight, make them money. (Let’s be real here, people.)
Well, probably almost every writer, given that e-publishing allows writers to become their own publishers.
Maybe perhaps a lot of writers want an agent, because all the big writers have them.
All right, already, I want an agent. I need a tutor in publishing and book marketing, a mentor in the business of selling fiction.
Dousing oneself in ice water appears all the rage these days.
I just wish I had an agent to wonder about.
BTW, Bell’s piece should be mandatory for all writers seeking an agent. It’s a business, people, not just art.
