How do you find the doorway of an agent for a passionate book as you described in your hub?
According to your hub, I have (I feel) a lot of passion written in my self-published book...www.amazon.com... Sisters of Survival, restoing the whole woman. It's been hard for me and at times discouraging, because I am feeling my way through this, I have a message and I have passion, living from paycheck to paycheck, I am hoping and praying for a breakthrough for the gift within me.
I am not sure which hub of mine are you referring to. I don’t remember saying anything about a way of finding a literary agent, but I know miracles do happen and you may be the lucky one.
From what I know, agents only consider books that have not been published before, so even using Hub Pages as an avenue to have your book read by others is a no-no, unless you limit your publishing to short fragments from different chapters.
The best piece of advice I could give you is to check the hub that Iammartin wrote about avoiding the traps of getting scammed by unscrupulous people who present themselves as being legitimate literary agents. You will learn a lot from it, so make sure you read it.
Another good way to familiarize yourself with the publishing industry will be to look up on the internet a site called “Writer be aware”
I wish I could be of more help, but that is all I know.
