Episode 4: How to Write Fiction - Thoughts on Literary Agents

Finding an agent can be tough - especially when a lot of agents want clients who are already published! Write the book FIRST. Then take your time and craft a perfect query letter that will knock the agents' socks off. And when it comes time to fire an agent, it's not as bad as it sounds.
