Each year, this writer's guide to literary agents contains more valuable articles and tips, plus detailed listings for literary agencies and agents. A new section in this year's edition is an independent publicist's section which contains articles about book publicity and listings containing information for a dozen publicity companies. The book includes two sections for agent listings, one for non-fee charging agencies and one for fee-charging agencies. Each agency listing includes contact information, a list of member agents, a list of recent book sales, the types of work the agency represents, terms and advice. In the fee-charging section, the listings also include information about the agency's fees. Special indexes in the book help you quickly find agents for a specific genre or a specific region. Other resources in the Guide to Literary Agents include a section with information about writer's conferences, a glossary and information about additional reference resources. This useful yearly guide is a must-have for writers seeking representation for a book or screenplay.
