Greg Daniel – How to Get Noticed by an Agent or Publisher

On August 30th, 2007 Irene Watson and Victor R. Volkman spoke with publishing agent Greg Daniel. Greg formed his own company this year after more than ten years in publishing, six of which were at the executive level at Thomas Nelson Publishers, the largest Christian publisher in the world. Most recently Greg was Vice President and Associate Publisher for W Publishing Group (formerly Word Publishing), a trade book division of Thomas Nelson. He shared with us key questions a new author has to answer:

  • When do you need an agent and when can you go-it-alone?
  • how do you narrow the field of agents and/or publishers?
  • how can you approach an agent in the way that will produce the best results?
  • How can I come up with a sellable book idea?
  • What is a platform and is it really all that important?
