FREDA'S Questions and Answers for Authors, Agents, and Publishers:
Q. What do I do?
A. I help authors by placing their work on my website to give them better exposure to agents and publishers. I periodically make contact with publishers to inquire if they are interested in seeing an author's sample package and/or full manuscript. I make contact with the author to advise when interest is shown in their book manuscript. Authors are responsible for edits to their manuscripts and for continuing to contact publishers and/or agents independently. I do not charge for this service, and there is no contract for being listed on this site. It is solely up to my discretion as to which authors I list and which I do not. Authors are under no obligation, and may remove themselves from this website by writing to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. What don't I do?
A. I am not an agent though I have contact with agents. I do not write contracts with agents or publishers. I am not a personal secretary, and I will not be working on this site constantly to upgrade your page for free. PLEASE make sure your page is correctly edited the first time you send it to me, and if you edit thereafter, consider that I am working on my own dime to list you; be considerate!
