finding an agent/publisher
We all know that when looking for an agent you're supposed to check the work of authors they already represent to find a 'match'. This is a long and arduous task - first you've got to find the authors and their books. I went to the library, managed to find only 2 out of 20 of the books. Then I hit on the idea - and I expect the whole world already knows this, but some may not - of going to Amazon where you search either the author or title and whoopee! up comes the 1st 2 or 3 sample chapters of their books. So now I can sit on the comp with coffee and chocolate and search to my hearts content.
