Back to the Waiting Game, Eh?

On September 29 I queried one picture book agent in particular.  It was the first query with a new picture book that has been in the works for over 6 months.  I still haven't heard from the agent, and he's one that responds to all queries, too.  Today makes two weeks, so I decided to go ahead and query a few more agents.  I queried four more, all of which have the record for responding quickly.  Who doesn't love speedy responses?  Also, my "dream agent" is closed to queries until November 1.  That particular agency quotes a 6-8 week response time, but when I previously queried them it took 3 months to get a response.  Whew!  I guess their mailbox really is overflowing.

How's your WIP coming along?

  1. I wanted to make sure you saw this, but they have a call for picture book submissions that was posted via Writer's Digest. http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/guide-to-literary-agents/ripple-grove-press-seeks-picture-book-submissions?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter :)
