On #WritersRoad: Evolution of Agents

Yesterday on the live #WritersRoad Twitter chat we discussed the evolution of agents. Here are some highlight tweets from the chat:


@HeatherMcCorkle
Having an agent is still the best way to get a pub deal with one of the big 6. We still need agents. #WritersRoad

@Tina_Moss: Two new agent models are emerging w/ authors who dont land traditional or epub deal... #WritersRoad

@Tina_Moss: 1) Agent-assisted self-pub where agent helps author with formatting, cover design, editing, etc. and takes 15%#WritersRoad

@Tina_Moss 2) ePub press where the agency sets up a separate ePub division. See Lori Perkins & Ravenous Romance as a model.#WritersRoad

@HeatherMcCorkle
A must check resource when searching for an agent: http://pred-ed.com/  #WritersRoad

‏@HeatherMcCorkle
Before searching for an agent, know your options, and know what you want out of the working relationship. #WritersRoad

@HeatherMcCorkle
Definition of a vanity press: Press that charges you for editing, cover, formatting, etc., then pubs you & takes %. #WritersRoad

@HeatherMcCorkle
With the ease of self-publishing, vanity presses help no one but themselves. Beware of them! #WritersRoad

@Tina_Moss The best part is that authors have more paths now than ever. And that is good news for authors and readers.#WritersRoad
