Don't get me wrong. There are lots of books and web sights that are great in helping you write, edit, publishing, etc. and etc...
But don't you get tired of seeing hundreds of books and web sights saying the same thing and they don't work? Or being offered help but it will cost loads of money?
I can see how it goes and the feeling there is to wanting to hire someone to do the work and find you an agent or a publisher. Or to go and do it yourself. But when it comes down to it, no matter what you do, you always have to do self work. And that's is the hardest part.
I'm having a tough time keeping motivated sending out quiry letters. But if I want something done, I need to keep pushing myself to do it.
Sorry if this comment is jumping around. It is how I feel at the moment.
