For those looking for some perspective on the frustrating query process, I suggest checking out Mr. Song's 9/12 twitter posts which nailed it for me: "A common complaint I hear about queries is the idea that it's not enough material to make a decision. The idea that an agent is reacting to a pitch and a few sample pages is held up as an example of how the system is somehow unfair. And yeah, it is unfair, but I want you to consider this as you think about putting your query together. A full letter and ten pages is a lot more material than what a potential reader in a bookshop is making their decision on." Brilliant, and totally true.

Didn't send my full until today (7/2) because of further edits made based on some critiques. Whew! Hopefully, he likes it...

This is the second MS I've queried to Mr Song. I think it's safe to say he does not like my concepts! Good luck to others that are a better fit. He seems like a good agent.
