Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a long time and thought I'd be courageous and post a question.
My situation: Out of 5 agents queried, 2 requested the full. One was an agent I met at a conference. I sent it to her after I finished polishing (about 3 months later) and got no response. I nudged her after 3 months, no reply.
The other is a top agent. I queried her via email and she replied in an hour. (Wow!) It wasn't good timing for her, but she wanted to refer me to a colleague who requested the full. That was 1 month ago... I know it could be a long wait... Meanwhile I keep querying other agents because I don't know how to else to deal with being in purgatory.
-----> QUESTIONS for those with agents:
(1) Did you get your agent through regular query? At a conference? Some other way?
(2) How did you learn of your agent?
(3) How long did you wait after agent requested the full?
(4) How many agents did you query? How long did it take?
I'm interested to hear your stories! Any advice or helpful tips you can share with the rest of us?
Thanks for reading.
