Literary Agent Package
Attracting the interest of a literary agent and/or a publishing house is extremely difficult, as you usually only get one chance to impress. We hear from too many authors who have submitted to agents, only to be rejected as the agent did not feel that their manuscript was ‘ready’, due to various flaws or editorial issues that could have been prevented. Our Literary Agent Package involves ensuring that your manuscript is of the highest quality that it can be to give you the best chance of success.
What Is The Process?
The Literary Agent Package helps you ensure your manuscript is ready to start the submission process by going through three stages:
Stage 1 - Beta Readers (you then have the opportunity to do rewrites of your manuscript, in light of their feedback)
Stage 2 - Developmental Edit (you then have the opportunity to work on developments to your manuscript)
Stage 3 - Cover Letter Writing (you are then ready to submit to literary agents and traditional publishing houses - good luck!)

What Does This Service Include?
- Beta Readers = It can be hard to get unbiased, constructive criticism from family members and friends, especially if they are not writers or readers themselves or are not familiar with your genre.
We also offer the option of asking particular reviewers specific questions once you have received feedback, so that you can hone in on any general areas they may have highlighted.
- Developmental Edit = For authors looking for traditional publication, it is crucial to ensure that your manuscript has had professional assistance with a Developmental Edit. You don’t want your only chance at impressing a literary agent to be ruined, if the agent picks up on major flaws or plot holes in the manuscript that could have been easily resolved!
- Cover Letter Writing = As a cover letter is such a crucial element of a literary submission and the majority of authors only get the one chance to impress, having professional input could be the difference between securing that publishing contract or just missing out.
This is an example of the Literary Agent Package for fiction writers. We can also assist with non-fiction works. Please get in contact for more information.
