In her interview Tracey Adams said:
"A manuscript may take time to sell, and when it does sell, there will be a
lot of waiting: for the contract, for your advance, edits, another round of
edits, galleys, the actual book, reviews, your royalty statements... Some
books will take off immediately, others will slowly find an audience, and
others, sadly, don't catch on. Since there is so much uncertainly in this
industry, my best advice to authors is to let an agent do the business work
for you - the author's job is to do what she is best at: write. Keep
