Author of Awaken
Reviews/Works in Progress
Not sure where literary agents went wrong but this is a sad trend. Agents on a high horse saying things like - “I MIGHT look at a self published author IF they sold a million copies” as if that’s an easy feat. • Or another complaining about a manuscript that was handed to her at a conference, then called out that author for it by saying she recycled it because “how dare this author give her a paper manuscript!” “MY agency ONLY accepts digital copies” then berates the author saying they’ll fail for not getting with the “digital times” • This behavior by agents needs to stop. For all the hardworking authors out there, good agents exist but also know you DONT need them. Their opinion of your work doesn’t matter and doesn’t make or break or career. • I know there are good agents out there who truly care about authors and their work, but agents like these are crass, rude and need to get off their high horse. • • • • #publishing #literary #bookpublishing #literaryagents #writingishard #writingispassion #beingrude #highhorse #crass #weneedchange #authorsworkhard #bloodsweatandtears #writersoninstagram #writerssociety #authorplatform #meanpeoplesuck #someoneneedstosayit
