: I was looking at the site somebody here mentioned (agentquery.com) and entered memoir. Jeez, a zillion agent names came up. But everybody is saying how hard it is to get an agent. If there are so many agents, how can that be?
Good question. They only make money if they sell books to publishers. But maybe it's like the real estate sales business: with today's big advances, they only have to sell a book once in a while. And don't forget they continue to make money as long as the book sells. Maybe they are like us writers - hoping to hit a blockbuster.
