Am I naive or does this sound strange...
I contacted a literary agent who has positive buzz on this blog and she said the reality of the business was that I had to commit to buying 5,000 books before she could sell the book to a publisher (a non-fiction business book). When I said that I didn't think things worked that way, she called me naive.
I had sent her an outline and said that it would be about 60 days till I complete the final draft and she said before she would take it on she wanted to see my website, list of speaking engagements, list of stores it's in.
I didn't think I was talking to a rep from a vanity publisher, but that seems to be who she was.
Anyone else out there have the same experience. Again, I more than a bit surprised since she has positive buzz on this website.
