agents/controversial subjecti really need some help
Posted 09 March 2011 - 08:38 PM
I have sent so many queries and have had no luck. I am following the submission guidelines of each individual agent/agency. Does anyone have any suggestion as to an agent or agency that would be interested in this issue? I am willing to share the synopsis and anything else someone may need to help me with this.

It's also a game of numbers. 50 rejections may still be low for a specialized project like this. I would suggest targeting agents who represent true crime also. This is fictionalized, so it would take an agent who could think outside the box a bit.
Another idea would be to research agents of non-fiction books or textbooks about sex crimes and run it by them.
If you get no glory from them, consider going straight to the publishers of such works.
If all else fails, self-pub and create demand/market through professional organizations first.

From what's posted here, I don't understand what the story or conflict is. I'd need to have a well written sentence that gives me a sense of character. Whose perspective are we hearing in this manuscript? The victim of sexual offenses, the offender, a forensic psychologist? All of the above and more?
Lanette has a point about stories in which the agenda is overt. If the manuscript comes across as having an agenda, it will feel like a lecture. Even if the message is a strong one, no one buys books to be lectured at.
