Today's the last day of Agent Fest 2020 - https://www.midwestwriters.org/agent-fest/ - and I got to pitch online via Zoom to 3 agents during this event. Two pitches garnered requests for a partial. The third pitch was a no as she doesn't like the time period my novel is set in (and she may not have liked my story but was kind enough not to tell me that!). All in all, two out of three is a good start and I got lots of information out of the conference for sending traditional written queries and working with agents. Frankly, I'm rather shy and it took a lot for me to query face-to-face, even if it was virtual via Zoom! I'm nevertheless glad I summoned up the courage to go for it.
