During his last 14 years as a literary agent, Noah Lukeman has represented hundreds of book deals, and in his blog, ASK A LITERARY AGENT, he gives aspiring authors insight into all facets of the book publishing industry. The publishing industry is a mysterious one, and it can be hard for aspiring authors to find answers. The blog, “Ask a Literary Agent,” gives authors a forum in which they can ask away, and have their questions answered in depth by an active literary agent.

This e-book, ASK A LITERARY AGENT (YEAR ONE), collects all of the questions and answers from the first year and puts them all in one downloadable file. Now you can conveniently have all of this information in one place and can reference it at your leisure, whether it's on your computer, or on your e-reader.

"Lukeman’s advice is practical—and often entails multiple, time-consuming steps—without a hint of the flakiness that creeps into many writing guides."
--Publishers Weekly (regarding The Plot Thickens)
