“To me, navigating the agent query process has felt like traversing Dante’s purgatory. This book is like a bible, determining whether you’ll ascend to agent’s heaven or remain in unpublished hell. I began searching for agents approximately three months ago and have dedicated countless hours to navigating a process that feels like a blend of business, marketing, quantum physics, art, and ultimately, literature/fiction. It’s been brutal. I stumbled upon this book accidentally while exploring Lucinda’s agency as an author (I have zero affiliation). Upon ordering, it arrived promptly. The book is concise and to the point. It includes numerous exercises that I’ve mentally worked through and plan to thoroughly review during my second read. Overall, it serves as an invaluable resource to understand (1) how the publishing business operates, (2) what is expected of authors (no fluff, very straightforward), and (3) dispel some of the myths that have made the querying process so daunting. As a bonus, the book teaches you how to make a good impression and craft a solid query, plus what happens after you sign. Overall, I would give it 10+ stars if possible. I highly recommend it; even if I don’t secure an agent, I’ll forever understand why. Thanks Lucinda!”
