So why all the e-mailing and phone calling lately? Part of the reason is my research on James, but it’s mostly due to my discussions with the agent.

Things have progressed farther than with any other agent I’ve been in touch with, to the point of me contacting several of her clients. It’s been as illuminating as it has been time-consuming.

I most likely won’t post any more on this topic until the process plays itself out, but I will probably have a lot to say once things are resolved, one way or the other. So, if you’ve got any questions — like I did, and to some extent still have — about the process of finding an agent, feel free to ask them in the comments or e-mail them to me at the contact address on the main page of Bartography, and I’ll answer as much as I can when the time is right.
