I have an agent interested in exlcusivity with my manuscript. This in and of itself is not surprising, but he seems really keen on learning names of other agents and editors that have also seen the manuscript. Every communication I have with him ends with the same question: Who else has seen the manuscript?
I have informed him of all interested parties, most of whom are no longer interested. Yet he persists.
Does anyone else have stories like this? Call me naive, but is this the modus operandi for most agents? Should this be raising flags?
