I want to conduct a small publishing survey, and I’d be grateful for some help with formulating my questions.
Now, as this is going to be a survey of the publishing industry I’m not going to ask things like, “pleeeeease will you publish my book?” I was thinking more along the lines of, “what guarantees a rejection?” or, “how many submissions do you receive each month?”
So what would you really like to ask an agent? What do you want to find out from all those editors out there? Post your questions in the comments section here, and I’ll include as many of them as I can. I’m happy for you to remain anonymous if you’d prefer; or you could email your questions to me at “hprw at tesco dot net” (please put “Publishing Survey” in the subject-line).
Thanks to you all for your help with this. I'll let you know how I get on!
