Reply The book industry is worse than the music industry. More egos. Best to have a profession and write as a hobby. Writes make no money unless you are Steven King or JKR. Reply When do we (writers) actually get to write! Sounds like we need to wear every one of those peoples' hats. I'm perplexed and feel hopeless of breaking in when I don't know any of these people, don't take their classes or meet them in conferences. Why? I'm too busy trying to read and view THESE informational books, videos, magazines, how-tos, etc., as well as marketing news, and so on and so on, and so on… Reply People are gross.

I don't feel like I would want to talk to or get to know any of these people personally. None of them look excited or inspired about anything. And I'm not sure what I should be getting out of this because they don't even inspire any good feeling for me when I watch this. Reply Also, what´s up with agents saying they want their clients to know about marketing, I thought it´s an agent´s job to do that, that´s why authors seek out agents in the first place. I might be naive though, but I would not trust an agent that told me they don´t really know much about marketing and promotion. Reply This was truly an amazing video, I learned a lot. However, an important questions arises for a new author in this day and age. Is it worth the time to pursue traditional agents? With cuts around 15% compared to Amazon/Self Publishing 70%+, it really makes me wonder. Sure, there´s some work to it, but everything is figureoutable (to quote Marie Forleo). Reply Wow. This panel seems to indicate that the traditional publishing professionals don't take the content of the novel as the primary concern. How many great stories were missed because of a lack of ego-stroking? Scary. Reply Great video, its good to see people overcome problems. I am in process of 2 books. Called Forgiveness Goes Both Ways and 8 Steps Before You Say "I Do" Reply I love the part that says, "No never means no." I am now self published, but looking to go the traditional route. This has been very hard for me. I am getting positive rejection letters, responses that say my work has merit, my work is interesting, but it's not for me at this time. I am going to take some courses with Gotham Writers' Workshop in 2016. If there is any input out there, please share. I don't really know where I am going wrong.

Reply Great video and lessons learnt… www.amazon.com/author/nanatsiwah for my poetry book "Half Our Memories and other poems" Reply How do you decide to publish a book for an author? The video just answered that question. But would appreciate any imput you're like to share. Reply 1hr 27 minEBOOK – if you have a topic that lends itself to PHOTO OR VIDEO start gathering VIDEOS and photos and it can be made into an ENHANCED EBOOK – not every topic lends itself to this but if you ever are thinking“hey I should film this for my book”, FILM IT!..or you can be worried about the language and a chair. Reply I can't help but wonder…..what does a literary agent bring to the table other than someone who takes a cut of your income? They wouldn't exist if they didn't have value, but I know what an editor does (can do). I'm not keen on having a literary agent, maybe self-publishing fits me better. Still, a great video…..thanks for posting. Reply I like how they ask for chairs for people standing half an hour in, did they stand all that time? 🙁 Reply I am amazed at the language thought acceptable by some in this video. Reply LOL. HA HA HA HA. LOL.
