Well, its been two months since I emailed my first three chapters to the agent from CrimeBake. Because of the holidays… Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years… I decided it was only fair to allow her extra time to read those chapters and get back to me.
I’ve been nervous about asking her… do I really want to hear what she has to say?
But I’m telling myself I’m totally prepared for her to tell me that my story is not quite what she’s looking for. Not many writers hit the jackpot first time out.
My fingers are crossed. My toes are crossed. So how much time do I allow for her to answer? How soon to follow-up on a follow-up?
