Author’s Update: Progress Ongoing 2

Also time to put in the garden! (Muddy yet again)

  1. Looking at the bigger picture.

 Is there a reason your book isn’t finding an agent? Is there a specific pattern of responses regarding the general concept of your book? Oftentimes, queries will not reach the correct person(s) due to attention not being paid to the category the agent(s) represent; this is one of the larger challenges of the query process.

Additionally, there is a good chance the story isn’t ready yet. The worst thing any writer can do…
