A friend of mine was really excited. Yet-to-be-published, she’d signed with an agent to prize-winning stars. When attending writer conferences, she’d mention to insiders the name of the agent who represented her, and they’d literally look at her in awe.
Sound like a dream come true? Try limbo-land. My friend seemed to only get the runaround. She wound up being more of a small fish in a very big pond, and nothing ever came to pass, except a lot of time and frustration, not to mention disappointment.
Has this ever happened to you? Regardless, would you have stuck with the agent, or felt that the potential was too good to pass up?
