Title: an agent not recommended by a friend
Post by: coll on December 06, 2007, 12:37:55 PM

    A friend of mine wrote a book (I did the cover art) and self published it. It did so well on Amazon that he was able to option the film rights and, in the mean time, secure an agent with the hopes of getting it published by a big house thus increasing the book traffic.

    He secured an agent who I thought was very respected in the business ( I was so jealous). A year went by and this agent had not approached one publisher with the story. He also was very hard to communicate with and eventually my friend terminated their relationship.

    I'm hesitant to give the name here (I'm not sure who reads this and this agency has many agents--one of which I queried).

    If anyone wants to PM me, I'll share this information.
