Wasting an Agent's Time
It’s really irritating when an author decides that the best way to get an agent’s attention is to lie. Ask enough questions and you will learn that the “interest from a publisher” that you need to jump on is not an offer or much interest at all. The truth, though, if you’re looking for a reputable agent, “interest from a publisher” isn’t going to get you an agent or a sale. We’re still going to want to read the book and see if it’s something we can sell.
