Agent or not?

2 Comments

I read this really interesting article in my latest issue of “Poets & Writers”. It was about hiring an agent for your writing. I’ve played with this issue for quite a while. I had a great conversation with an agent no too long ago that enlightened me.

For one thing the agent said, some of the things that they would do for me I already do. Am I ready to give up some of my rights as a writer? Would it be a good thing to have an agent that took care of all the things I’ve done for myself. At this point I think not.

I do think at some time or another I might play with the prospect. Now if an agent comes to me with a deal I can’t refuse don’t think I won’t jump. I just don’t want to jump into something and then regret it later. 

The article also discussed talking to new agents in the business. They said it would probably be beneficial and quicker than going with someone that’s already bogged down with other writers.

Let me know your experiences with agents. Were they good or bad? Would you recommend it or not?

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

  1. I’m glad I have an (experienced) agent — she has the ability to get her foot in the door of many traditional publishing houses that I can’t.
