An Agent's Point of View based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Seldom does a book appear that touches every aspect of what writers want and need to know about the art and business of getting published. But Sheri Williams' 'An Agent's Point of View' does it all . . . and more. What a resourceful and highly informative work it is! As a published author and professor of writing, I have scoured book after book for the information Ms. Williams' offers in her valuable guide on a wide range of writing topics, from creating queries, formatting manuscripts, designing proposals, right down to the etiquette and ethics of agent-writer relationships. It's all here! Her writing is so smooth, her information is presented in an easy-to-read manner, and her words are so valuable that I wish I had this book before I began my journey to becoming a 14-book published author and critiquer of hundreds and hundreds of manuscripts. Take it from me - from someone who knows, from someone who has sweated through query and proposal writing, from someone who has received enough rejections to wallpaper her entire home -- that this is a must-have book for anyone who is tackling the challenge of writing. Ms. Williams has the nuts and bolts down pat, and gives it all in a most entertaining and understandable manner. It's a great job all around by an excellent writer!
