I have been digging in your archives and note you suggest querying several agents simultaneously. In AAR, I can only find 12 agents who are looking for new clients and are in my category (Science Fiction/Fantasy). Once I finish those, should I just move on to Writers Guide and have at it? I'm worried about using the "good ones" up on my first book and not having good ones available to query for the next book which no doubt will be much improved.
Let's assume you didn't pause, and re-read this email before you sent it.
Let's take that pause now.
Read again. See the problem?
Read it again.
Hint: read the last six words.
Ah yes, now you see, and without being bopped by a clue stick.
For those who are still flummoxed read on:
Don't waste my time or anyone's time on your first novel if you know the second novel will be better. Send the second one. You do not have to send every novel you write out to an agent for it to have value. In fact, we'd all be happier, you especially, if you don't.
Yes, it's mostly a total waste of my time to hear about first novels. But it's also a waste of your time, money, and most important, your enthusiasm and confidence. Write a couple novels, and see how much you learn and THEN send me a little perfume scented note on unicorn (pink of course) stationery telling me this is a sure winner.
