Update Agent #16 – Gimme 50

It appears I’m on the right track with my new-and-improved query letter! Less than three hours after I sent it off to Agent #16 – he’s the Los Angeles based one with Lauren Bacall as a client – he wrote back. It wasn’t a long email but it was very personal, very personable and he even emailed me a photo of one of the locations I mentioned in the synopsis I included! And then he went on to say “Why don’t you send me the first 50 pages or so to take a look at.” Whoa! That’s the most any agent has asked to see…by a long shot. So guess who’s going to find an email from me when he gets to work Monday morning?
