Back to agents. I think it would take more than an Ebook contract with a new small publisher to woo a respected agent. But you never know — depends on sales. Contracts do not guarantee a book will be popular. If an agent deals with your genre and likes your writing it could help, especially if your book gets into print and sells well. Obviously an agent is not necessary for Red Rose and many other similar publishers, as terms are set.
Yes, I am an expert — in an author's folly!
But I have learned by experience and my books are enjoyed by quite a number of readers. Fame, as such, is irrelevant to me.
Best of luck with your books.
I toyed with getting an agent and question whether it really benefits me in the long run. Especially to a new author (or unknown. Regardless of whether you are signed to Harper Collens or Simon and Schuster or you self-publish on Lulu.com; the marketing falls to the author. Period. And, the royalties from the big publishing houses are minimal for fear that they will not recoup any expenses from signing an unknown.
I think those days are long gone. Just my 2 cents though.
Thanks for coming on board.
