Do I Really Need An Agent?

With the rise of self-publishing, and publishers accepting unagented authors, does an author really need an agent?  In terms of support authors can have their friends, family, and fellow authors, so why does one need an agent?

Now all these points are true. However not every author has a large capital to produce high quality standard books. Yes you can do eBooks, which is cost effective, however the quality of self-published eBooks can be really poor, hence, the reason for low sales.

There are publishers that accept unagented authors, but whose going to fight your corner if you have problems with the publisher? If you have a complaint, don’t understand certain technicalities with the contract, or how to go about chasing royalties. Who can you turn to? Well a solicitor can be expensive, isn’t it better to have someone who has your best interest at heart, to explain things to you?

Yes family, friends, and fellow authors can support you, in terms of buying your books, but they are not who you’re writing for. You are aiming to attract a worldwide audience. Your family, friends, even fellow authors cannot keep buying your books.

Having an agent I believe is a great value to the author. An agent can handle the administrative tasks, such as chasing up royalties, most importantly finding the publisher, while you concentrate on what you love doing best, writing. You can focus better on honing your craft, building your credibility while the agent handles the rest.

An agent is the best investment an author can have, especially when they find a very good one, which is a Christ centred relationship. It is a partnership that is not only for the short term but also for a long time to come.

About The Agent

It was in secondary school where my love for writing came. I loved English and whenever it came to writing short stories I was always awarded a gold star. 

When I was in college I wanted to be a reporter, so I began volunteering with an organisation called Millennium Volunteers. I was involved in writing for their newsletter and magazine, which enhanced my report writing skills. 

I then went to university and studied Journalism, I graduated and got my Bachelor’s Art degree in the year 2004. That was the proudest moment in my mother’s life seeing her daughter with a degree. 

After university I had a change of heart I wanted to get into public relations as I felt that career suited me better as a person and I would be successful in this industry more than being a reporter. It took me almost a year to get a job in public relations it seemed at the time no company wanted to hire graduates, I was grateful for the job I got as an Public Relations Assistant within a charity organisation. I enjoyed this job I helped organised events, write press releases, and collated press cuttings. 

I wrote my first book called Don’t Look Back-The Harmful Consequences of Backsliding. This was published in 2010 and sold a few thousand copies. Other than writing a book I began to write for on line magazines and interviewed best selling and award winning authors such as Judy Baer, Babbie Mason, and Tricia Goyer. 

But my passion for helping aspiring authors came when my friend Yvonne Ellis asked me to help her with her book. I read her manuscript, edit, provided her with a publisher, her book has been a bestseller she has been on television and radio. I helped another author publicise her book and she received full page coverage in a local newspaper, I loved this so much that I decided to be a Literary Agent. This is my God given destiny.

I worked with agent Pauline Barnes and after three years I decided to venture out on my own. This is how The Authors Care Services began. I give God the Glory.
