Just when it seemed no one would ever respond to my query, I got some action yesterday. I emailed a query to Jill C. at the Herman Agency and received an immediate request for the full manuscript. I also received a request for the first 50 pages from Anne B. at Pen & Ink. Finally, some interest. I’m glad something positive happened yesterday because two of my frontrunners weren’t interested in the book. At present the book’s with two agents and the first 50 pages are with one. I have around 13 queries out there, but I’m guessing at least half should be closed with no response. More queries will be sent out on Tuesday.
