View Full Version : Exclusive Requests - Good, bad or indifferent?

Is it considered a plus or a minus if an agent asks to see a complete ms on an exclusive basis?
also, what is considered a decent length of time for an exclusive before it's permissable to query other agents/publishers. If the agent does not specify a timeframe, is it considered bad practice for the author to do so?

Make sure you know how long the exclusive is to be for, before you agree to it.
