  1. Hi Jessica and James, great as always! Thank you for the informative information. It is a business, but I never looked at it as such. I wondered about books that are out of print. Do you still get royalties? Have a wonderful day! Thanks

  2. Thank you for this informative video. It offers even more reasons to hire an agent for one’s book journey.
