innesfreeil – 2009-09-28 1:14 PM No, actually, I wasn’t joking. I think that those without jaw pain cannot understand what it is like to not be able to talk some days and not be able to chew sometimes. I think a good agent is passionate about the books they represent, and I don’t think that someone without jaw pain will feel passionate about my book.
I’m so glad you came back. 🙂 What makes you think an agent without TMJ will not feel passionate about your book, or even an agent with TMJ will feel passionate about it? I think what spurs passion in agents is a well written saleable book, because that is how they make their money.
The passion for your book needs to come from you. 🙂
