I lied. I didn’t send out my novel with the last post. I spent the summer working in an office, and working on the novel in my free time. I printed, edited, re-wrote, and edited again. I print so I can edit by hand, and edit on the manuscript itself with red pen. Now, these months later, I feel the most ready I can be to send out the novel. I’ve tirelessly poured over the query, compiled a list of agents and agencies in an excel doc, and edited the manuscript itself ad absurdum.
By the end of the month I will take the time to simultaneously submit the queries and attached manuscript samples to every applicable agency I can find. I’ll keep you all posted.
