    Talking Four offers of rep! :D

    So after querying for a month, I got an offer of representation, which quickly turned into four after I pinged everyone with the update!

    I'm so excited and I couldn't have done it without everyone on AW, who helped a ton with my query, general questions, and just provided an awesome pool of knowledge and coolness to draw from (this is my first time querying).

    I won't be able to make any official announcements until January 4th, which is how long I've given all the agents to get back to me (I still have 21 fulls out).

    So I wanted to say thanks and you guys are the best! (For anyone wondering, it was a YA/Thriller 64k).

    Congratulations! Wow, that was a quick querying journey. You clearly did not suffer enough! 21 fulls. I'm in awe.

    Now the hard part - choosing.

    How cool! I remember your query in QLH. All these offers are definitely well-deserved!
