Today I want to encourage you if you have questions about finding a literary agent to represent your manuscript and take care of you during your writing career. My new agency, Illuminate (formally DJ Jacobson), walks you through what agents are looking for.
What I love about this submission page is this: they tell you exactly what to do. Illuminate provides a nice template to follow that you can download to build your proposal. I highly recommend this template. I’ve sold several books using this very template. My favorite part of this template is when they ask for the compelling one sentence that tells the agent and publisher what your book is about. It’s the best way to focus your message.
I hope this blog inspires you or a friend to get started on the next step of your book publishing dreams.
