A publisher or agency using Google ads to solicit your novel probably isn't anyone you want to write for.

I googled ‘Can a novel be mostly dialogue’ and found this forum...
So thank you Jefferey Pace for asking the same question!
And thank you everyone for weighing in
Thank you especially "eyeblink" and "maestrowork" – I immediately bought Red Shift and No Country For Old Men
(Also put The Friday Society on my wish list for later. Looks like a movie crying out for three leading ladies!)
For anyone else wondering about dialogue driven novels...

Interesting way to have found this forum. I found it googling a small start up publishing house to see if it was a scam or not. Apparently E64 looks pretty shady to most.
