Ask a Literary Agent (Year One) (free e-book)

This blog has now reached its one year mark, and I thought it would be convenient for readers to have all the information from year one easily at their fingertips. I have thus assembled all of the questions and answers from year one into a PDF file, so you can conveniently have all of this information in one place, and can read it at your leisure, whether it's on your computer, or on your favorite e-reader.

  4. Recently, my friend signed with a well known literary agent in USA. In India he got a publishing contract directly from the publisher and the Indian edition of the book is expected by August end. The US agent never tells anything about the submissions to the publishers in USA. Now, she has asked my friend to send her 6 copies of his book (Indian edition) to resubmit to 6 publishers in USA. What does she mean by RESUBMISSION in this case? Kindly guide.

  7. Dear Mr. Lukeman,
    Kindly advise, it is critical, a specific agent at the Writers House as requested to see my work but now after reading your book, how to land an agent I realize that my work is not like the rest of the works on his client list. What shall I do, do I resubmit to another better fitted agent in the same house now or do I wait to hear back from him.
    Sincerely,
    Nazia

  8. I currently have an agent for a non-fiction project. I have also completed a novel and asked him to read it. He loved it, but he told me that fiction is too hard to get published in the current environment, so he passed on it. He does not handle fiction. Would it be ethical to submit my manuscript to another agency and, if so, should I submit with a pen name? Thanks so much for your help.
