Pitfalls of negotiating your own book contract
from By Deborah Niemann
After hearing multiple friends talk about the benefits of having a literary agent when negotiating book contracts and even reading about it in Stephen King's On Writing, I had long said that I would never negotiate a contract on my own. But after receiving enough agent rejection letters to paper my dining room walls, when a small publisher asked me to write a book for them, I decided I could do it myself. Three book contracts later, and more stories from friends, and I am ready to start the process of finding an agent to negotiate my next contract.
