Thinking about pitching your book idea to a literary agent?
It’s no secret that scores of book pitches and proposals end up in a mammoth-sized slush pile every year. So what’s going to help your book idea stand out?
Literary agents have to sift through a mountain of book ideas. Many of them miss the mark and get dumped. But if your book pitch is handpicked by a literary agent, they’ll partner with a publisher to bring your book to life.
Note: This does not happen by accident.
If you’re serious about writing a book and pitching a literary agent to help you get published, the throw-this-together approach usually doesn’t work.
You need to think like a literary agent. Look at it this way: More than half of the book pitches a literary agent receives aren’t a good fit. If you don’t want to fall into the abyss of rejections, you need to know how to stand out.
