View Full Version : a little dilemma

Hi there!

I have an agent reviewing my ms who was the only one reading it at one time. He didn't ask for an exclusive, but has shown great interest. He had requested a revised version of the ms (which I sent) and he likes the changes. He wants to schedule a call to chat further about the book and the series after he finishes reviewing the revised version. In the meantime, two other agents have asked for the full ms/partial ms. Should I inform agent number 1? I don't want to pressure him as I know that he is very busy, but at the same time I would like to be open about where things are at.

Any thoughts?

I would bite cuticles for a while yet before informing Agent 1. Since he didn't request an exclusive, go ahead and send out to the others. If you want to stick with Agent 1, you can inform him if you get an offer from another agent for representation, basically giving him right of first refusal. Then, if he turns you down, you can go with the other one.

Run this one past Miss Snark.

How about the "ask Jenny Bent" thread? I'd love to hear her take on this.
Good luck to you, whatever you decide to do.
