The title of this post is intentionally restrained, maybe too restrained, because I don't want to get all excited and then all disappointed if things don't pan out. But....
An agent requested to see my novel!
This is big news for me. Big, big news. Huge, in fact.
And it all happened thanks to a revised query letter.
That's right. I'd been sending out a query for Survival Colony Nine that seemed pretty good to me, but it wasn't getting any bites. So I went back, did a little research, and revamped the query, making it catchier, snazzier, snappier, whatever-ier. And within a day, I got a reply from the agent asking to see the whole manuscript.
So first of all, thanks to all those online resources that tell you how to write a dynamic query. They obviously helped.
And second of all, thanks to those (mostly my wife and children) who have held faith in me during this process. My daughter said to me just yesterday, "I have a good feeling about this."
And third of all, keep your fingers crossed for me!
