So often we read that agents like to know we've done our research, whose books we envisage seeing our own tome sharing a shelf with, how important it is to sell ourselves as well as our book and so on and so forth......
....... I've just looked up Bill Hamilton at A M Heath who represents Katie Fford, only to find in an interview in Myslexia, that he doesn't want any of that. No comparisons, no over-selling, no detailed synopsis.
Will still send my novel to him, but it's worth looking to see if there's an interview with your chosen agent prior to submitting your work, isn't it?
