Get This Book BEFORE You Pitch an Editor or Agent

  • Dec 17, 2010
Every would-be author faces a critical decision point in their journey to publication. It's when they submit their manuscript to the editor or literary agent. Sometimes they do it in person at a writer's conference. Most frequently they send it via email or a hard copy. For every novelist, they need to craft a great story but what many of them fail to consider is their first impression. They only have ONE chance to make a good first impression.

Multi-published author-turned-literary-agent Terry Burns knows what it takes to get past that first hurdle (and the ones that follow). A WRITER'S SURVIVAL GUIDE is a practical and realistic picture of the persistent search for every author to get published. Burns says, "The biggest secret to publishing is the ability to get the right product to the right person at the right place and the right time…Hitting all four of these--product, person, place and time--correctly is the whole game." (Page 82)

The contents for this book originated from an online course Burns taught for the members of the American Christian Fiction Writers. The pages ooze with an experienced voice of someone who has had many writers pitch their stories. Every novelist will profit from a careful reading of this book--then applying the information to their next pitch.
