When Mark retired as a literary agent to become an author coach, he quickly realized that the literary agent directories on the market (print and online) were flawed. The print versions are 6 months old by the time they’re edited, printed, and distributed to bookstores. And the online versions are riddled with mistakes. Getting an agent is hard enough–the last thing you need it to get rejected because you’re literary agent information is unreliable. That’s why Mark created The Directory of Literary Agents™.
