I am not sure what to send
« on: July 27, 2010, 06:00:30 PM »
Low and behold I received a request today   :y:, however, I am not sure whether I should consider it a partial or a full. All the email said was to send the file as a pdf or word doc.

I was going to send the entire MS stating that I wasn't sure what she wanted (no guidelines on their website BTW) and wanted to be on the safe side and send everything. Would  that be wise?

The agent can turn a full into a partial whenever he or she wants, so email the full.   :wink: Storage space is cheap. Email the whole thing. Congrats!

Thank you all so much  :'(

I swear life is just a mystery. I was ready to shelve my book a few days ago and here I am with my first full. I guess everything happens for a reason.
