My Path to Signing with a Top NYC Literary Agent.
Anna Sabino

Thanks, Anna for sharing your process.

I like your strategy of going to writer’s conventions.

Obviously you feel that getting a publisher is better than self-publishing. Why?

I self-published a memoir four years ago and did little to market it. Now I see at least three more memoirs, and I think I have something important to say — I want to get my words out there.

The process of self-publishing was not easy for me. Although I am 73 years old, I do have some tech skills, but not as many as the average teen ager.

A friend suggested I was too old to be self-publishing and taking care of marketing due to the tech difficulties. He suggested I get a publisher.

Can you please offer a comparison?
