An agent is a writing professional who specializes in bringing authors and publishers together and administrating contracts that are beneficial to both. In addition, many agents help their clients (and aspiring clients) learn more about various aspects of the field of professional writing.
If you’re an aspiring author, lurking on a few agents’ blogs is an excellent way to get a feel for the writing industry. This week our blog tour takes us to Santa Rosa, California–home of Between the Lines (http://booksandsuch.biz/blog/). One of my personal favorites, this blog is sponsored by the Books & Such Literary Agency.
