Partial meaning the first three chapters, but still! Only been querying for a week and I'm thanking whatever divinity is out there for this site, because I would be completely lost. I didn't know the first thing about writing a killer query letter, but thanks to so many supportive people on here, I got an agent's attention. Even if it's not for her, I won't give up. Thanks to everyone who helped make my query the best it could be!

Thanks! I just had a few questions. She was very prompt at responding to me. It was Saturday morning that I received her email stating that she would be happy to look over the first three chapters. I sent them to her immediately and since then, haven't heard anything. Is this pretty common? I realize agents are busy people, but how much time should I allow to pass before a friendly check-in if I haven't heard from her? Sorry if this is already posted somewhere.

Allow at least 3 weeks, for an agent to read a partial.
