Actually, Ash once had an agent who made these mistakes on her behalf. I see that she's learned to chuckle about it, now that the book is out!
I missed this when I posted...I learned to laugh it off a long time ago. I had to preserve what little sanity I possessed. :D
And I did it with the help of TG and Rosie and Mary and all the QT bunch--not just though personal support but also though the constant education I've gotten through the QT forum. I learned so much about publishing in all its forms and manifestations and glory so I KNEW my world wouldn't end just because I was unlucky enough to sign with the wrong agent.
It happened. It'll happen to someone else. I hope that writer knows I'll be here to help them persevere just as Sarah and the others helped me.
And, in the meantime, novice agents--read my original post!
I'm here to help you, too.
