About Me

A blog wherein a literary agent will sometimes discuss his business, sometimes discuss the movies he sees, the tennis he watches, or the world around him. In which he will often wish he could say more, but will be obliged by business necessity and basic politeness and simple civility to hold his tongue. Rankings are done on a scale of one to five Slithy Toads, where a 0 is a complete waste of time, a 2 is a completely innocuous way to spend your time, and a 4 is intended as a geas compelling you to make the time.

Another agent has a guest post from a major account sales assistant at a major publishing house that talks about how books are sold to the major accounts, and promotions allocated.  It's interesting.  You can check it out here.

Fascinating stuff. I mean, the more I know about this industry, the better I feel. At least there will be *math* behind my book not showing up on the new release table. This time around. :-D
