For any writer, the ultimate dream is to write a bestselling book. But before that can happen, you have to find a publisher who likes your book enough to buy it and publish it. And before you can do that, you normally have to find a literary agent. One of the most common pieces of advice I give to aspiring writers/authors is that publishing a book isn’t even the bullseye you’re trying to hit, it’s finding a literary agent. After all, there’s no point in daydreaming about hitting a home run if you can’t even get into the ball park.
