LITERARY AGENTS: DO YOU NEED ONE? Are they worth their weight in gold or a lead boot that holds you down? You Decide!
With a book endeavor, making a single bad decision can cause your dream to come crashing down. Wasting your limited personal budget on nonprofessionals, choosing the wrong “literary agent”, or even choosing the wrong publishing method are a few of the major reasons why so many aspiring authors and entrepreneurs never fulfill their dreams.
You could have a stellar book, but sending it down the wrong path—putting a road block in the way of your success—can squash your plans for your book before you even get out of the starting gate.
What is so significant about this is, an agent can be a bridge or a road block to getting published.
