I’ve sent my query and first few pages to a couple of literary agents over the last several months. I can honestly say the process is a disappointing one. Some actually respond to let you know you’ve been rejected. The others allow you to sit and wring your hands with no response at all — the silent rejection. I don’t know which one I prefer yet. So, I’ve had five rejections so far. I’ve sent off my query to another agent with hope springing anew each time. I don’t know how many to query. I don’t know exactly who to query. I just keep looking folks up and hoping I hit the right person. If you’re out there, dear literary agent, I am looking for you. I have a manuscript for you. I hope you like it. Please, oh please.
