So to give everyone an idea of what’s going on; I finished my very first novel about a month ago. Since then, I’ve been subbing it to just about every legit agent I can find that works in my genre. As of now, one agent has a partial MS, one has a full, and one has convinced me to completely tear apart and re-write the entire beginning of the book. Supposedly, it can take months to get an offer, if one ever comes, but I’m still desperately clinging to the idea that somebody’s gonna love the characters as much as I do and offer to represent me. Hope I have some good karma points stored up somewhere . . .
