    There is a reason why Chuck Sambuchino's "2015 Guide to Lit

    There is a reason why Chuck Sambuchino's "2015 Guide to Literary Agents" is called the most trusted guide to getting published. Indeed, it's a must-have book for anyone considering a career as a writer. Informative, up-to-date (a necessity in this business!), and supremely well-organized, this guide offers not only current listings for over 1,000 fiction and nonfiction agents, but it also contains a number of articles with inspiring and practical advice on the craft of writing as well. From Chuck Sambuchino's invaluable chapters on how to write a synopsis, how to write a nonfiction book proposal, and how to create your writer's platform to Marie Lamba's essay on the 10 reasons agents reject your manuscript to Elizabeth Sims' essay on 8 ways to write a great opening chapter, this book is chock-full of invaluable tips. It's a 5-star book for sure!8
