Publishing with Rutledge Hill

Do I need a literary agent to self-publish a book?


No, you don’t need an agent to self-publish a book with Rutledge Hill. One of the wonderful aspects of self-publishing is that you bypass the gatekeepers and middlemen associated with traditional publishing. The standard path to traditional publishing is first finding and being accepted by an agent, which can be time consuming and frustrating. Then the agent pitches your book to publishers, and you wait … and wait. You’re at the whim of traditional publishers to accept your manuscript and publish it, which could take years or never happen at all. With self-publishing, you have the power to publish your book when you want, on your terms.
