Trying to find an agent has been quite the up-and-down process.
Yes, I’ve gotten rejections. A lot of them. Or at least what feels like a lot.
I’ve also gotten multiple requests to read the full manuscript. I’ve gotten multiple requests for a partial manuscript. I got one “This isn’t right for us, but if you have something else, feel free to send it along.”
That one feels weird to me, because I’m sending out the best thing I have. Are there people who are sitting on their best novel and shopping their second (or third or fourth or whatever) best? Why would someone do that?
But so the process continues. Things are moving along, although I’m in a holding pattern while waiting for a response from the agent who has my manuscript. I hope she loves it, even if she passes.
