EPISODE 247I

Today's guest is literary agent Cynthia Ruchti of Books & Such Literary Management. You may remember Cynthia from Episode 240 when she spoke to us about writing with deep emotion.

Cynthia gives us a great bird's eye view of what agents do and don't do, how that will differ among agencies, and things for you to consider in order to know when is the right time for you to look for an agent.

Part of what a literary agent does is to eliminate all the reasons why an acquisitions editor would say no to a manuscript, she says. But depending on the agent, they also help manage an author's career.
