“Following up on ‘The
Publishing Game: Bestseller in 30 Days’ Fern
Reiss presents her latest strategic program for would-be authors,
‘The Publishing Game: Find an Agent in 30 Days.’ ‘Anyone
who has the stamina and energy to write a book can easily write
proposal that will hook an agent,’ she states, and that positive
attitude infuses her week-by-week and day-by-day plan.
Reiss’s advice is wholly pragmatic, whether it’s how
a marketing plan to convince an agent that your book will
sell or ‘good places to cruise’ to meet agents in person.
Aspiring authors will find a trove of useful information here
to aid and abet them in their search for a literary agent.”

“Chock full of terrific, insider secrets—a must read
any author seeking a top-notch agent! And what writer isn’t?”

“Brimming with publishing wisdom that will help you get
the agent and publisher you want—fast.”
— Michael Larsen,
Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency
“This book is one
of the newest offerings in the Publishing Game
series. The author systematically walks the reader through
all the actions one should take to acquire an agent in 30 days.
As a published author, myself, I have placed books without
an agent; I have self-published; and I have been badly burnt
by two agents. Writers, if you want to find a good, legit
agent; if you want a crack at the major publishers, or
even smaller ones; if you want someone protecting your interests;
if you want to sell foreign and movie rights, you really
need this book. The author communicates clearly and concisely.
I am always impressed with the resources she provides
to the reader.”
— Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews
