Have you ever heard about this? Literary Consultants?
Here's an example:
The Writing Coach.
Someone mentioned she had used a Literary Consultant (this specific one) before she queried her novel, and now she has an agent and a 3 book deal.
I've never heard of someone (or a team) of people you can hire to help you out, a creative or literary life coach if you will.
I think most people can be successful on their own without a consultant, but still, color me intrigued. If it wasn't in the UK, I'd dig a little deeper on this, for curiosity's sake. But clearly it is not cheap.
What about you, would you ever hire a Literary Consultant?
P.S. - being as there is a delicious holiday in the states tomorrow, there will be no Friday Fun Words. See you Monday!
