Right, I'm trying one more time to post on this and if my server cuts me off again I'm giving up. Then again, if it does, you won't know I've tried to post ...

Could it be that it's an issue specific to your ms? ie. something really interesting happens pages 6-15 that is only being led up to in pages 1-5?

If it is, could you shove it up at bit (very technical term that) and make it happen within the first five pages to ensure those type of agents are grabbed?

If I were you, I'd go over the first five pages with a fine-tooth comb, so to speak, and ask yourself: "If I were an agent, would I want to read more? If I were a reader, would I want to read more?"

Of course, take that for what it's worth because I've not yet sent out any queries.
