I read through the archives at Greyhaus Literary Agency, and the reoccuring theme I kept seeing is a seething dislike for authors. Maybe they're just stressed. I also did not see any books they have placed with a publisher.

I do not believe agents are necessary for most of us because, unless you are a celebrity, agents do not want to hear from us anyway. Most of us are not going to get published with the Big 6 NY publishers, so the realistic approach is to contact smaller publishers that published through Amazon.com.

Being that the Big 6 have a monopoly on printed books, most of us are locked out of print publishing, and our only option is the growing Kindle market. Forced into Kindle, today's new authors have fallen into the future of publishing. I always say, even a blind dog finds a bone sometimes. That's me.

Rejected by all the agents and big name publishers, I feel blessed and thankful for Kindle and all the great Kindle readers.

As for creating an online presence, Amazon.com does most of the marketing for you.
