Hi, All. Deb asked me to post a question here since you've all proven to be excellent resources.
"My pastor and I are collaborating on a religious book that we believe will have a very large, worldwide audience. We do not want to self-publish. My pastor has a divinity degree and will do the writing. I have extensive experience as an editor and will edit the ms. We live in upstate NY and would like to hire an agent that works with religious publishers. I have more than 100 titles in print but they are all in the education market, and I do not know anything about the religious marketplace. I'm turning to the group because the Web is crawling with "agents" who are really people wanting to help a person self-publish."
If you have any info for Deb, or can point her in the right direction, please comment directly to the post. Deb gets your responses faster if you do that rather than replying to the email and waiting until I can forward it to her.
Thanks for your help,
