One hour later I received a request for the first three chapters because my email server weirded out the format of the sample pages. Very understanding agent!

Congrats LightofBeauty! Your story gives me hope. It’s so funny how I keep seeing the same names pop up in the comments. I feel like we are all in this together and have been querying for a long time now. I’m hopeful we will all find our agent one day. We just can’t give up.

@Catsamoa79 - THANK YOU! I had a few full requests from other agents, so I nudged to let her know :).

Congrats LightofBeauty! So nice to hear a success story! I am curious as to why you nudged so soon. My query acknowledgement said 6-8 weeks for a response.

Nudge, 9/22
9/23 FR, and asked if I was free for a phone call, which gladly, I said yes!
9/23 Scheduled our call same day :)
9/27 Our phone call was AMAZING!!! We spent about 45 minutes bouncing off ideas on ways to make the book better, all things that I agreed with 100%, and that she's clearly excited and passionate about working on with me. And what amazed me was also how she answered all of my questions throughout our discussion all without me having to ask them, it was like we shared the same brain. Rhea is SHARP, extremely experienced, warm, caring, and has a clear vision for my work, I'm breathless and over the moon at how wonderful and perfect she is for my book and for me!
9/27 OFFER OF REP!! Since other agents have the full, I'm reaching out to those other agents first to get back to me by October 8th before I accept Rhea's offer. But omg - Rhea is brilliant and amazing!!
10/3 OFFER OF REP ACCEPTED.

Rhea is one passionate, hard-working, timely, and talented agent and person. Incredibly personable and so fun and easy to talk to and collaborate with, we're already hard at work with revisions and cannot wait for all that's to come.

Everyone, I know the querying process is soo discouraging, and sooo long, and soo soul-draining, but please, DO NOT GIVE UP. Keep going, and you will find the agent that's just right and perfect for you.
