Who is the literary attorney you hired to vet your contract and/or agency agreement?
Elaine English. Her rates are reasonable, and she works with authors who aren’t local or located in the States. You can find her contact info here.
I can’t afford to hire an attorney. Will you give me free legal advice?
Sorry, I’m not a lawyer and not qualified to do so. If you can’t afford an attorney, get a copy of Negotiating a Book Contract: A Guide for Authors, Agents and Lawyers by Mark Levine.
Will you read my manuscript?
Sorry. I don’t read manuscripts from people I don’t know or have an existing crit partner relationship with.
I read somewhere that you’re looking for a critique partner. Is it still true?
Sorry again, but I’m no longer looking for one.
