GET YOUR ANSWER
Get expert answers to all of your questions about publishing your book in terms of genre, selling, licensing, marketing, or industry best practices.
IMPROVE YOUR PROSPECTS
Be sure what you don't know about publishing doesn't constrain your publishing opportunities with an evaluation of your book idea, publisher options, marketing plan, and how your professional activities can help your book's prospects.
REVIEW YOUR CONTRACT
Your contract comes with business realities and hard-wired customs for your rights, obligations, and options. Need ideas for generally accepted alternative language? Turn to an agent! No contract yet? It's the best time to define goals and parameters.
PLAN YOUR PROCESS
Surprised your great editor is too busy to walk you through the arc of activity that runs from manuscript submission to backlist sales? Come here to save time and reduce chaos by planning for the life cycle of your book.
SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM
Complications (even mistakes by author or by publisher) happen. Tap an agent's experience to craft a solution: reviewing what's behind a publisher's actions and designing a fix for any problem that won't injure the critical collaboration between you and your publisher.
After a few consultations, some authors keep us on call for a sounding board and for guidance to ensure the best collaboration with publishers.
