About This Item: 
A true game changer for writers that gives the latest insider information about getting published from the three-decade guru of the publishing industry As a new agent in the late 1980s, Jeff Herman was bothered by the fact that most writers had minimal access to agents and editors. It simply wasn't a meritocracy, and many excellent works never saw the light of day. He decided to give everyone access to the information needed to realize their writing and publishing dreams. Sharing insider insights from his fellow publishing gatekeepers became his mission, and for each new edition of this guide, he queries 175 of his fellow agents and presents their frank and fresh, often quirky and entertaining responses. Over the past three decades, countless writers have turned to Herman's guide to figure out how to unlock the seemingly impervious doors to getting published.
