You get an agent - and they immediately sell your book, right?

Well, maybe not. It didn’t happen that way for me. In fact, my first two books did not sell despite the best efforts of my very capable agent. [Full disclosure: a fact that would have probably killed me if I had known it up front. Two plus years of work, stillborn.] The third book sold in two days.

In this blog posting , an agent muses on how many clients sold their first book, how many sold later books, and how many have yet to sell.
