We strongly believe the future of publishing is in grassroots marketing.

Is there something along this line that writers should be doing for themselves before they find an agent?  Will that help in the quest for an agent?  I have now for instance, an exended “reading group”, consisting of the young people who have passed through the Villa (in Fez) already and are characters in the book.  How would you present that, or should you, as a plus to an agent?

Thank you,
