Some super expensive shoes for Susan, who writes, “I recently received an e-mail from an agent who said she would like to represent my book. But she also pitched her writing workshops to me. When I said that I wasn’t sure I could commit to her workshop, but had already hired an editor who is well-known in the subject of my book, this agent replied that she can also help me with edits on a one-on-one basis–for a fee. Do you think this is a conflict of interest: representing my book and being my editor for a fee?”
