FULL REQUEST
« on: August 11, 2019, 07:55:28 AM »
Woohoo! Got a full request for my most recent MS. Yay! After a bunch of rejections, it feels so good. And it was based on the query alone - no sample pages. So, once again, thanks to the wonderfully generous QTers who helped hone my query letter. Giving it one more going over before I send it off.

This certainly isn't my first rodeo, but there's nothing as enjoyable as seeing my MS get so excited, doing it's Sally Field Oscar's acceptance ("You like me, you really like me.") Manuscripts say the darndest things. *fingers crossed*

Thanks jldelozier, jcwrites and jessikalindst.  Now to try not to obsess about it and continue researching agents and querying.

Yay, congrats!! It's such a good feeling :) I accidentally sent a query letter off in June without the first 10 pages pasted per the agent's standard guidelines, and still got a full request, so you never know what might happen in this crazy industry ;)

Thanks Pineapplejuice, Munley, and novelgirl92.  Disappointed to say it ended with another rejection. :badday:
