Do you need a literary agent?

Short answer: If You want to sell your book to a publisher, yes (but feel free to check out my free guide "Getting Your Book on Shelves" to be sure!).

Hi, I’m Mary Adkins, author of the novels Privilege and When You Read This and I live in Nashville with my adorable baby son and semi-adorable husband, where I'm currently at work on my third novel.

I struggled for a long time to find a literary agent without realizing that I was approaching it the wrong way. (Want to avoid my mistakes? Find them here.) Once I nailed my process, things got a thousand times easier.

Today, I'm with the same agent I've had since day one—and she's sold my books all over the world.

Here is everything I wish I'd known in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step mini-course. I walk through exactly what to do, from how to find the perfect agents to email, to what to write to them, to what to do after you press "send."

This course is designed to save you dozens (if not hundreds, frankly!) of hours of time. By taking the guesswork out of the process, my hope is that you find an agent who loves you—and whom you love just as much.
