Etiquette Question - Submission Withdrawal
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:06:29 PM »
In all the excitement over signing with an agent, I forgot about another proposal I had sent out some time ago.  I feel like I need to send a note to that agent and withdraw the proposal from consideration.  Anybody have tips on how to go about wording that?

Thanks in advance!

You should absolutely do that.  I sent out emails to the agents who were considering fulls and thanked them for their time and consideration, informing them that I had accepted an offer of representation.

Congrats again.   ;D
