SUSAN ELIA MACNEAL: Victoria Skurnick of LGR Literary (and my own beloved agent) was on Jungle Reds a few months ago, talking about no-nos when approaching literary agents with your book proposal.
while eating bon-bons? (OK, I can hear Victoria laughing now....)
The truth is that literary agents don't have a set job description and every day brings a different challenge. The great literary agents are adaptable, proactive, relentless, positive. They love books and champion their authors.
Read on and learn one agent's perspective of the other side of the desk…..
SUSAN ELIA MACNEAL: Thank you, Victoria!
Reds and lovely readers, do you think you would make a good literary agent? Why or why not? (I'd be TERRIBLE — too many people…..)
Does Victoria's perspective give you and sympathy for those on the other side of the desk?
