Upgrade on a partial... what exactly do i send?
« on: May 13, 2013, 09:23:16 AM »
So, I'm sure I'm totally overthinking this, but an agent who requested my first 50 pages has asked to see more (YAY!) but I'm not sure if I should send the full manuscript (including what she has already read) or just pick up from where the partial ended? This is exactly what her email said:

"I would love to take a look at the rest of your manuscript. Please send as an attachment to this email address once again."

Opinions? Advice?

I always sent the complete manuscript--from beginning to end, even though the agent may have read the first 30 pages. It's possible the agent will share the ms. with others in the agency, so make her job easy. Don't ask her to piece two sections together.

Just my thoughts...

I agree with JG. Send the whole thing so the agent will have one complete copy.
