Big but not very usable 10. Dezember 2011
Von Ali Vossughy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book has plenty names of Publishers and agents, however the agents are not listed by genre and since you need to find an agent prior to being published, it makes the search difficult.

Jeff Herman's Guide is an Amazing Help for Anyone Looking to Publish 15. November 2011
Von PGAdair - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is actually really amazing and helpful. There are detailed sections on what each publishing company wants and will publish, what editors are like and how to work with them, specific agents at different agencies and what they are interested in agenting, and even information for the first timers that are just getting into the idea of getting their work published. This is good for some one who has zero knowledge of how on earth to begin to publish a book. For those who have published, but need a new agent, this book is for you too. The literary agent section is enormous, and gives you good insight to each of the agents interviewed for this book.

I'm still going through and highlighting certain agents that I would be interested in contacting (because the agent the type of books I write). There are a few in there that are just plain scary sounding, but others that just seem open and very friendly. Overall, I really love this book. It's given me not only ground to stand on so I can get my barrings in the publishing business, it's supplied me with the tools and the know how to get started on building a career there.

Very highly recommended.

A MUST HAVE for the Newby Writer Looking for an Agent 23. Oktober 2012
Von Lylyanna - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After spending a lot of money on other online-recommended Agent search books, a very kind agent told me to get Jeff Herman's Guide even after she rejected my query letter. Best thing she could have done. The information in the Guide saves a lot of time and effort so you don't waste your time querying agents who aren't a good fit for your work.

Invaluable for Writers without agents 6. Februar 2012
Von J. W. Bludis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Any unagented writer who does not have a recent copy of "Jeff Herman's Guide" is well behing the curve. I get a new one every two or three years. Editors change, Agent's change, addresses and tastes change. Jeff Herman keeps us up to date. [...]

A helpful and interesting guide. 7. Januar 2012
Von James Minard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors and Literary Agents is just what the name says it is. It's also interesting to read.

I sympathize with the fellow who wanted people divided into genres. However, reading the Guide will show one reason that would be very difficult. A single agency, agent or editor may have at least half a dozen interests, in addition to those suggested by the books they've been involved with or other information.

I suppose some sort of searchable database might accomplish the goal. Some books contain a CD, but those add to the cost. One book gives a web address, advertising that saves the reader the cost of the CD.

However, as I worked on my book I found it interesting just to read the Guide. It shows what interests are out there. That should have some influence on any person who wants to write something that will attract an agent or editor.

I find Herman's Guide fascinating reading and very useful. Of course, editors and agents change, so one should supplement the Guide by looking at web sites. I recently found one agent was no longer associated with an agency. He appeared to have set off on his own. There's nothing wrong with that, but when I finally contacted the fellow, he showed signs of paranoia.

(I know that's true because when I described the interaction to my wife as factually as I could she said, "Forget him!" OK, that's not a true clinical diagnosis, but it was my feeling too. He'd offered a workshop with an attractive title so I wondered in an e-mail if it was coming up or he had already given it. He saw my e-mailed question as a "scolding.")

It's good to see agents and editors at writers' meetings. I met the Hermans at one and found them healthy and delightful.

Of course, publishers' editors move on. Sending a submission to one who has is like tossing it into a black hole. A call to the publisher is sometimes wise before sending off your life's work.

I believe the Jeff Herman Guide is a wise investment early in the book writing process. I'm glad I did. When I'm closer to publication, I will probably buy the latest edition as a guide, not just in deciding where to submit, but also in that very important final polishing.
