I totally want to reminsce about this fab scene from a ms I was never able to sell & it makes me sad that so few ppl have read it.
I know many agents can sympathize with this. Not every book is a great success. Sometimes we have to pass on books that we really quite enjoyed. Sometimes agents just have to face facts: just because you like it, doesn't mean everyone else would.
I will ruminate more on the subjective nature of the publishing business, and how agents try (sometimes unsuccessfully) to navigate the mine-field, as soon as I don't have a quadrillion things to do.
Thanks for reading.
