publishing, agents, and all that jazz

Most interviews I have read with agents are nothing more then puff pieces that promote the agent and/or the traditional publishing houses. 

As a result, most interviews I’ve read with agents are worthless.

This one seems to hit it right down the middle. They do promote themselves but they seem to be fairly candid and straightforward about the benefits of being an independent author. 
Definitely worth a read. 

I’d appreciate your insights below.

  1. Interesting article, although it doesn’t really tell us anything we don’t know already. I love the people in the comments section trying to pitch their books! Hilarious.

    1. It doesn’t teach us anything we don’t already know – as long as we’ve been reading and partial articles and not just the ones put out by the traditional publishing houses and their agents.
