: : On the internet, I read all kinds of advice on how to attract an agent's attention. They all say I have to make my proposal quirky or unusual just to make them pay attention to me.
: : I say, why should I? If I write a great novel, why should I demean it by making up some kind of rediculous query just to get an agent to read it? What happened to the traditional concept of a partnership between a writer and his or her agent?
: Right on, poed. They've been putting us in the "mother, may I please publish my nice book" role too long. I say we rise up and throw the bums out.
How do we do that? Somehow they have become "in charge" of what gets published in this country.
