vfcarr- The comments below are referring to partial requests (PR) from her after the initial query letter was sent. I only sent a query to start with, as per the guidelines you mention.

Did people submit first five pages or 3 chapters or any of their actual MS? The guidelines on Red Sofa Literary say just send the query but comments below suggest that folks sent more than that?

Yikers. Looking at all the partials floating around, I'll just focus my energy elsewhere.

@JEGilliam: VERY YES. I believe the general advice is to query widely to appropriate agents. More than just several agents.

I've read some of the folks in the comments waited a _year_ to see a response to a partial request. Seems like I should be hunting for several agents at a time. Is that the general consensus?

Thank you for including me in your agent queries. I have reviewed it and am afraid I must step aside on this proposed book. I was not enthused enough about this project to read more.

I wish you all the best with your endeavor.
