You are self-published.

You now want to go traditional.

You’ve heard agents won’t take self-pub.

What do you do?

Ask Chuck Sambuchino.

“Many writers who’ve self-published a book for one reason or another get to a point where they want the book to be taken to the next level and see a widespread, traditional release. This is the point where they may contact a literary agent for representation.

  1. I tend to write novellas over full-length novels. I learned from Chuck personally that few agents are willing to look at manuscripts less than 60k words, so an agent may not be an option for me…

    1. You never know. There are more agents beginning to look at novella length these days from what I have been reading. The market is more open to it. Trends change. If a story is good a story is good. Just have to find the right one. If I see one in my traveling the internet I will let you know. But I also know you love indie. 🙂


      1. I love being indie because I tend to bend genres and write about “unmarketable” subjects. I’m considering querying this time around because an agent at a conference said this idea has a good hook, even if it’s not what her agency is looking to represent.
