Thank you for your information about the search for publishers and agents, Jane Friedman!
If you have a book idea or a manuscript, one of your first questions is probably:
How do I find a publisher?
Or, if you’re more advanced in your knowledge of book publishing, you may ask:
How do I find a literary agent?
The good news: there’s no shortage of resources for researching publishers and agents. The bad news: you can easily spend hours going down the rabbit hole of available information.

Besides my freelance SEO copywriting, I have ghostwritten a book, which is awaiting publication (more on that soon!).
Anyone interested in this line of work should send their potential clients to this article to ensure a good collaboration.
Written from the point of view of the client, I list here some things I discovered in the process, like when you need a ghostwriter and how to choose the right one for you.
I found an interesting article published by Laurisa White Reyes. Thank you so much for your advice, Laurisa

If you are not comfortable tooting your own horn, welcome to the club. Writers tend to be introverts by nature. Most of us do not like drawing attention to ourselves. In fact, give us a quiet corner in an empty house for hours on end, and we’d be quite content – as long as we have our computers to keep us company.
But if you want to sell books, you need fans – not fans of your books – fans of YOU! It’s not always about the story you’ve written. Yes, of course, you want your readers to love your books, and they will. But before they ever hit that BUY link on Amazon, they must have a good reason for doing so, and that reason is their loyalty to you as a person.
