New World Library, 2014
640 pages

The process of writing may end when you type “the end,” but if you want to share that work with the world there is much more to the process. Industry insider Jeff Herman provides authors with information to help them get a foot in the door, tips to get representation from agents and to get their hard work in the hands of publishers.

The first section deals with advice for writers, including query letters, book proposals,and the proper usage of social media. Then comes the listings, beginning with the publishers. Included are the “Big 5” conglomerates, independent presses, university presses, and Canadian publishers. The largest section of the book—over 300 pages—is dedicated to literary agents, while independent editors are examined and listed in the final section.

Aspiring authors have been using Herman’s Guide since 1990, and likely will for years to come. It is one of the best tools a writer has at his disposal once he is ready to begin contacting those in the business.
