Quick Study Sessions
Based on strong success during 2014 and 2015, author study sessions are now offered by The Hartnett Agency by appointment with individuals and small groups. Sessions include advance review of work, developmental support and other consultation. Input from more than one literary agent is available. So, when you are ready to take a bold step beyond published how-to guides, tap an agent's experience with an affordable online session.

Here's some free advice for anyone who hopes to publish a book: understand what makes your book valuable by understanding how publishers do business.
Most authors fail to master this fundamental reality, but enthusiasm is no substitute for preparation when it comes to working with publishers. So, do some homework.
Even before a speed course in publishing during our quick sessions above, we recommend writers get familiar with a few how-to reference books out there. Our top recommendation is by Jeff Herman.
