The Author's Checklist: An Agent's Guide to Developing and Editing Your Manuscript (Paperback)
An Indispensable Guide for All Writers in All Genres
The bad news: even really good manuscripts have weak spots that are enough to garner rejections from agents and publishers. The good news: most of these problems are easy to fix -- once the writer sees and understands them. After several years of evaluating manuscripts, literary agent Elizabeth Kracht noticed that many submissions had similar problems, so she began to make a list of the pitfalls. The Author's Checklist offers her short, easy-to-implement bites of advice, illustrated by inspiring -- and cautionary -- real-world examples. Most aspiring authors yearn for a friend in book publishing. The Author's Checklist is just that.
