Well, the fat lady sang.
Within about six weeks, all sixteen (A-List) publishers responded to Client Relations with a resounding...NO.
Which means that landing an agent isn't the end of the story. I'm back to square one,
My agent has told me to shelve Client Relations for now, and come up with a new book idea that will be a best seller. Her advice is, if book one doesn't sell well, book two will be a tough sell, so she wants my first book to be strongly positioned. So my next book one needs to be a killah book: A NYT Bestseller.
No sweat, I'm working on it.
