I Think Agents Are a Bad Thing…
For most of you reading this, that is a well-duh.
So it dawned on me that one agent or some publisher could buy this package from Data Guy and with very little work figure out EXACTLY what any agency is making from all their clients book sales. (Not advances, book sales.)
Of course, it won’t include overseas and movie rights and such as I said in the long post before this, but it should be enough information to make any agent or agency in New York quake in fear at this personal information about all their authors getting out.
That just makes me laugh.
I wonder where all the writer’s organizations are sleeping on this right now. That also makes me laugh.
A serious topic, no doubt. But a few places I can see a few giggles in all this mess. Especially what it will do to damage and destroy many agents.
