My book is ready for publishing. The question is, are the agents or publishers ready for my book? Sending submissions seems to be a full time job. Every agent wants something else. First 30 pages, first 50 pages, synopsis, some as attachment some in the body of the email.And allegedly the agents have about 7 minutes to decide whether they want to even read the manuscript attachments.I need a secretary!It would be so great if an agent would bite my bait…I feel that I would like to read a book like mine.
