Format: Paperback
The Guide to Literary Agents for 2009 is an excellent resource for writers looking for an agent. It covers the US but also the rest of the world. It includes agencies that are not accepting submissions just to be thorough. If you're looking for an agent, give this book at try.

By Hannah on 7 Jan. 2012
Format: Paperback
The book arrived promptly and in good condition. It is an interesting read and the first half has some good tips but most of the listings are based in America. It's not ideal if you're seeking representation in the UK.

A vital book for any author 14 Nov. 2008
By C. Catherwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While I prefer the Jeff Herman book (hence 4 stars for this not 5), this is nonetheless a vital tool for anyone who wants to be an author, and I know people who have succeeded in getting a literary agent (and, even more important, published by good publishers) as a result of buying it. In fact why not get both this book and Jeff Herman's and see if you end up getting published! I owe my literary career to my agents and no decent author can get on without one. Christopher Catherwood (author of CHURCHILL'S FOLLY on Churchill's creation of Iraq in 1921- which had an agent)

Helpful Hint 4 May 2009
By Jean Marie Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a SUPER-GREAT reference book for finding an agent. HOWEVER, do not skip the step of checking out the agent's website! One agent I looked up had changed the name of the agency, one changed the contact person, one changed the preferred method of first contact, etc. As up-to-date as the book is, it simply cannot be as current as the internet...but it does provide internet addresses!...as well as a ton of other important information.

The first part of the book helped me to get a firm idea of what the search for an agent entails--a lot of do's/don'ts, feedback from actual agents including their pet peeves that often get authors' query letters chucked right away, etc., etc. The reference part of the book and the index helps me find which agents might be interested in my book--what kinds of books they represent, how active they are in seeking new clients, how many first-time writers they represent, how they find new clients--as well as what kind of an agency they are--how big their firm is (how many agents they have, how many clients), how long they've been around, where they're located. It says how to contact them & who to contact (again, check the website to see if that's changed), gives contact information. Everything you need.

If you're a serious writer, you need this book. Trust me.

looking for an agent 12 Dec. 2008
By Joseph J. Cacciotti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
2009 Guide To Literary Agents I was amazed to find so many Literary Agents in this book, however a few of the agents listed are no longer in business. Check the agent on the internet before sending anything.

HELP FOR AN ASPIRING WRITER 21 Mar. 2009
By Gwen P. Choate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For those of us who live out in the hinterland, writing faithfully but totally unaware of what's going on in the publishing world, this is the kind of help we need. It's almost like getting a personal introduction to an influenial person who can steer us in the right direction. - Gwen Choate

I wish that I would have had a guide like this when I published my last book.

The information is accurate, well organized and very helpful.
