Query Letter Update

In order to accomplish my New Year’s goal of getting my book published, I have once again started submitting query letters to agents.

In case you were wondering why agents and not publishers, I have one main reason.  Most agents will respond to queries in weeks, whereas publishers tend to respond in months.  A reputable agent will not take you on unless they think your book will sell, since they only get paid when you do.

I sent two e-queries yesterday.  I’ve already received a rejection email from one of them.  The other agency has said that they will respond within three weeks, but only if they are interested. 

I’ll keep you updated on the process!
