Totally agree with Rob – you need to write YOUR book and then find the agent/publisher who’s looking for the type of book. Writing for an agent is like writing for a trend – by the time the book is ready for submission, the agent is either booked for the season, has a new interest, has retired – or you discover you completely misread what the agent really wants. And quite frankly, I can usually tell when a writer isn’t enthusiastic about the book they wrote (ie, they wrote it “to order”).
