Congrats on the critique win, Jan. I know aother winner who was also very pleased with the feedback.
December, the author I referred to had Golden Heart x 2 + numerous 1st place RWA chapter contest wins. She has since parted ways with the agency. *shrug* not the right fit.
I didn't mean to question their success. I know they have many satisfied authors. I guess what I failed to express clearly is the fact that the almost cult-like belief among many authors that 'he/she who has the most blog followers must be the best' confuses me.
