Hi everyone,

 

Can someone tell me what is the main difference/s in getting a deal with a publishing company, instead of singing with a literary agency?

 

Which is better?

Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

Literary agencies don't publish books. If you gain an agent, that person will represent you to publishers and gets paid a commission on your earnings.
