As a leading literary agent and top selling published author for 25 years, Jeff Herman understands the publishing business from all points of view. Herman says that writers are needlessly handicapped by a lack of access to agents and editors, which cloaks them from seeing and understanding how publishing functions and how to maximize their own value for mutual benefit.
“Agents, editors and writers are all on the same team, though we often don’t behave that way. There’s no telling how many wonderful and profitable books don’t get published due to an outdated editorial process. While technology has vastly and rapidly changed how editors, writers and agents work and communicate, the quality of the communications has actually declined.”
The WAE Network concept has been germinating with Jeff Herman and his business partner and spouse, Deborah Levine-Herman, for over 10 years. The Herman’ fortuitous meeting with serial entrepreneur David Borish, Founder & CEO of http://www.BPWiz.biz helped bring WAENet to life. Herman is also an Advisor for BP Wiz.
“I created the software BP Wiz as a free tool to help writers draft query letters and book proposals, so when Jeff and Deborah told me about their ideas for the WAE Network, I knew right away that it was a perfect fit for BP Wiz,” says Borish.
WAENet is scheduled for a November launch. Until then anyone can sign-up at www.waenet.com. The first 1000 people who sign-up and share with their friends will receive a FREE Lifetime Membership.
