So after sending out about 30 emails to various literary agents, I have one rejection and one request for the first 50 pages.
The rejection was pretty comical. It was like we don't want you, but hey, there are plenty of fish in the sea right? Keep trying.
The request for the first 50 pages was really exciting. It was from the Liv Blumer agency. She found my letter intriguing and wanted to know more. So I printed off the 50 pages and am off to the Post office. Then it will be another waiting game. Has it really only been less than a month since I wrote the book? It feels like a year,
This week I am also going to mail the full manuscripts to Cedar Fort, Deseret Book, and Covenant. But there is this whole process and author questionnaire thing that I have to include. not to mention the annotated table of contents. I thought the hard part was writing a good book. Seems like that was only the beginning.
