Once upon a time I saw an agent's website that explained it all: the whole business flow of publication -- the author, agent, acquiring editor, what happens in the publishing house before an offer is made, how the book gets bumped up the decision chain, all the people who contribute to the decision, then the nuts and bolts of printing and wholesaling and distributing -- the whole bit. Of course I didn't bookmark it, because it would be so easy to find it again. Yeh.

Anyway, does anyone know where I can find that info pretty well summarized? I've been piecing it together by reading here and there, but I'd like to see it in one place.

If it was once upon a time, it's probably all changed now.

It was about a year ago. But it seems as lost as a lucky charm in a fairy tale.
