Time really does fly. Today I received a response from an agency I submitted a query to in July 2013! That is the longest I’ve waited for a response, I usually assume I won’t hear anything after six weeks to two months, but I guess now I can bump that wait period further back. The response was a no, unfortunately, but the letter was very nice and did mention showing the query to more senior members of the agency (so someone, somewhere must have liked it). I am still waiting for some queries to come back, but while I do so I am prepping my manuscript for the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. I have a pitch to write, editing to do, an except to perfect, all things to keep me busy! Meanwhile, I’ve also been working on other streams of writing, with a focus mainly on short stories. All in all, with everything I write and read, I believe my writing is getting stronger. But boy, what a long process.
Until next time.
