Self v mainstream publishing comment
in the front of the book Sign Of The Cross by Chris Kuzneski (Penguin 2006)
the author says:
Professionally, I'd like to thank Scott Miller, my agent at Trident Media. How we teamed up is a remarkable story. he bought a self-published copy of The Plantation, (my first Payne and Jones novel) in a Philadelphia bookstore and liked it enough to email me. At the time, I had a folder with over one hundred rejection letters from literary agents, yet the best young agent in the business bought my book (at full price) and contacted me. Not only did I get a royalty from his book sale, but I also got the perfect agent. Amazing!
Sometimes you just get lucky, don't you??????
