Possession is being considered by two New York literary agencies.

by Robert Amoroso



Action/Thriller
I wanted to take a moment and give you an update on “Possession”. A while back a made a calculated decision to have my manuscript read by truly mainstream and traditional agencies and not the “Vanity” and or “POD” Publisher’s that seem be everywhere on the Internet.

I wanted to give myself the best possible opportunity and perhaps test my own writing abilities and see if I was truly “worthy” of being called an “author”.  Of course the jury is still out on that, I’m published and thus considered an author. However, to be truly accepted within literary circles one needs to understand that the publishing industry is today, (thanks in part to technology) at a crossroad. On one side stand the traditional mainstream publishing houses, on the other the “vanity” and or “POD” (Print on Demand) presses.

 

Both provide “published books” to the mainstream, yet only the traditional published authors enjoys worldwide recognition, having books stocked on shelves within “brick an mortar” bookstores. Only the traditional authors have worldwide publicity and national promotions, and more importantly universal acceptance within the literary community.

 

Some may argue that “POD” Publishing is on the vanguard, the “cutting edge” of what the future will be, and perhaps they’re right. However, before that ever happens they need to “clean their own house”, they need to decide who’s truly worthy to carry the mantel of “author” and who’s not, and until that day, I leave my title for the jury to decide.

 

Hopefully that “title” will be granted, as I have just been asked to provide the entire manuscript of “Possession” to, two mainstream agencies in New York City. With fingers crossed and a palpating heart I’ve complied.

 

Above is a photo of myself, “reaching” out once again to a literary agent, who has an office in the Empire State Building.
