Wednesday: Continuing to query?

I just read a blog post that linked me to more blog posts on how to chose an agent. Learning that writers get simultaneous offers of representation made me feel a little bit loserish. Just having one person mildly interested feels like such a huge deal.

I’ve got a list of the next 10 agents that I was planning on querying, but now that one has asked to see my first 100 pages, I think I’ll hold off.  I don’t know if this is what people do?  I didn’t mind the idea of several of my queries milling around New York, but the idea of having multiple offers from agents makes me nervous.  Plus, my potential agent was one of my top picks! Instead of more querying, I’ll focus my energy on hoping that this works out.

  1. God bless! You’ve received a request from one of your top agent picks. Well done! Whatever decision you make now, as long as it is with your own best interests in mind, is likely the right one. Please keep us all posted and best of luck!!!

  2. Wow! Congrats on getting interest! From what I have read that is a thing to be proud of. Good luck!
