Re: When to approach an agent
Before you roll your eyes, yes, I know after the book is written-but, what if you’ve sold your first novel (kidlit) to big NYC publisher on your own and you are now working on your second? Do you still wait until the mss is finished or is it acceptable to approach agents in the interim?
You call an agent before you sign the contract for the FIRST one!
NEVER sign a publishing contract without getting advice from an agent or a lawyer who specializes in book contracts (not contracts--BOOK contracts).
Most agents welcome query letters that show up attached to offers.
And yes, query now. And I'm not really rolling my eyes..I'm just exercising my newly threaded eyebrows.
