The Agent Game

A viewpoint on publishing

Communication is the key

leave a comment »

Good relationships are built on communication, and that’s as true for the agent/writer relationship as it is for anything else. When a writer and their agent are on the same page, things will usually run smoothly. When either the writer or the agent has issues that they don’t communicate about, things tend to fall apart. That’s why it’s important to let your agent know when you have a problem with how things are going. While agents do have many amazing powers, most of them are not psychic, so if you don’t let your agent know that you’re uncomfortable or unhappy about something it probably won’t get fixed. Letting problems fester isn’t doing either you or your agent any good, and certainly isn’t healthy for your long term relationship.
