Well, for better or for worse, I’ve sent off all the queries I wanted to send. I might fire off a few more if I read about an agent for whom Book the First would be an obvious great fit, but other than that we’re moving on.
Number of Agents Identified: 26
As a reminder, those are only the agents I’ve identified since making a major reedit/reworking of my manuscript, synopsis and query.
Number of Queries sent: 26
As I said, I’m done sending queries.
Number of Rejections/Stale Queries: 14
No changes there. Obviously, some of my queries are quite close to being officially stale, but I’ll wait a few more weeks.
Number of Requests for the Manuscript: 2 – Both ultimately rejected
Still no change there. Hopefully I’ll get at least one more tally in this category (along with one in the “offer of representation” category.
Well, it’s time to move on. Book the First, you’re on your own now.
