I'm behind on answering your questions, it's true.
Fret not, I'll get to them.

If you send a question via email, I let you know when it's posted.
If you just leave a question in the comments trail, you're on your own.

Off now to see if anyone in the slush pile seems like a good prospect.

Generally speaking, who has the most power in the world of publishing? Is the the agent, the author or the editor?

Oops, I made a typo there. Not enough coffee this morning. I meant to say, "Generally speaking, who has the most power in the world of publishing? Is it the agent, the author or the editor?"

None of the above. The reader has the most power.

I can't naswer Jeff's question. But humorist P.J. O’Rourke did:

"My advice on dealing with publishers: Let your agent do it. Agents are more important than publishers. Agents are more important than anyone. Which brings me to my advice on dealing with agents. You can’t. They won’t speak to you. They’re too important."

In a perfect world maybe but the reader can't find/read what the number crunchers the at the publishing houses won't buy because they don't feel there's enough profit in it.
