|Comment||Thank you for your timely response, Susan. I am currently working on a cover letter along with a table of contents and a sample chapter. Hopefully this will give an angent/publisher enough to decide if they want to learn more about the idea or scrap it. I checked into it and what IS out there, is not the same as what I have planned. Their books are more slanted to different genres. Anyway, I'm hoping that what I present to an agent and/or publisher, will be enough for them to decide if they want to learn more about the idea. As for my protection, I thought I heard something about mailing the info to myself and the postdated envelope would offer me protection? Also, what if I sent my proposal including a signature confirmation or something similar? Thanks again for all your help. BTW- My last name comes from my husband. Have a super Sunday! Regards, Susan|
