It is now done and on Monday the first email to the first agent on my list was sent.
It is with trepidation, emotion and anticipation that we are now waiting for a response. Will it ever arrive? Will it be positive?
We will soon send an email to a second agent, and then we’ll tackle the submissions by post, which are quite tricky as agents’ requirements vary enormously. And you don’t want to upset an agent from the word go. You want to do it all perfectly so that they don’t have a reason to reject your submission before they’ve even read ‘Dear So and so’.
It has taken a while to get to this point, but it is better to take your time and be precise and as perfect as you can, than rush and forget something or do things wrong.
Please please please don’t tell me there was a typo or an inconsistency…
