This came in the mail the other day. Out of a dozen or so attempts at finding an agent for my children’s picture book based on Agnes, I’ve gotten seven responses. I’ve sent most queries out by e-mail, but put together a couple of hard copies for some who prefer snail mail. Don’t forget the SASE!
To the tune of Dory’s ditty in “Finding Nemo,” I’m going to just keep trying, just keep trying!
A friend who finished his first novel told me he sent his manuscript out to 50 agents so I have a long way to go. It just takes time to personalize every query letter.
I’m pet-sitting this weekend and when I told MaineMan the family didn’t set me up on their wireless network he said, “GOOD! That means you can write more!”
Crack. Me. Up. But I guess he has a point.
He continued, “You’re not supposed to be on Facebook when you’re supposed to be writing!”
Back to the pitching board…
