For the young writer, I, along with most other writers, urge you to persue the traditional route of acquiring an agent for your writings. It's hard work, I know. I could paper the walls with my rejections, but if you want to measure your success in publishing by maximizing sales, it's the best way to go, by far.
Over the years I've done many things, fed many desires, with writing being only a late development for me. I regret none of them. I only wish that I had begun writing seriously sooner.
Nevertheless, I'll continue to work toward representation. As a writer of books, I need to keep faith with that goal.
Now, enough about me.
Are you a writer seeking representation? Is your manuscript complete and perfect? Have you edited the entire work multiple times? Have you formatted it to published standard criterea? Ready to query an agent?
Okay, then. Remember, in doing that, you're writing a business letter, one with a specific stucture. Learn it, because not doing so will result in immediate rejection.
