Hi there Miss Snark,
I've been browsing the agent deals in Publishers Marketplace, and I was just wondering: do ALL agents post ALL their book sales here? I was researching some agents who I *know* are very reputable, and yet I couldn't see many sales for them. So that got me to wondering if all their sales make it into this source. What would be an agent's motivation for notifying or NOT notifying PM?
PM is the best resource in town but it's not a complete list of deals. I don't list all mine there. I've left off things cause they were anomolies for my list, or cause we had other concerns.
I always have a spike in e-queries when a deal goes up at PM. I'm sure that agents who aren't looking for any queries, or who don't need to build their biz (think ICM, CAA etc) don't list their sales.
