Re: Literary Agents

From what I understand, two guys I know (whose book was just #1 on a few bestseller lists) weren't looking to publish, but a former editor at a publisher read their book and said "dang...", he then mailed copies to I think 19 publishing houses, and they got 3 rejections.

(that means they got 16 acceptances, heh...)

Unfortunately I don't know who that former editor is, and I don't know if he works as an agent, but there may be a process or a person at a publishing house you could ask what the best process is.
