Well said Sir. Good info for those still seeking. Also, HOW you go about submitting to agents is incredibly important. Make sure you follow the submission guidelines on their site (if any) and be professional. Nearly half of the submissions we receive are not done properly and are then never opened.

Erik…thanks for your response! That’s a good point and something all of us should be diligent to do….Make sure we are submitting our materials as directed by the agency.

FYI…Erik is my agent in NYC and good to have his input here!
