So… as I’ve been mentioning on and off for the past few days, I’m moving towards querying again.
Call me weird, but I’ve been looking forward to this for some time. However, I’ve forgotten how soul destroying it can be. (And I haven’t even mailed my queries yet.)
I spent most of today going over my old agent list to see who’ll actually represent Adult Urban Fantasy. I’m about half way through the list, and it feels like my brain is turning into goop.
“I’m attracted to stories with a fresh voice and strong story.” At which point it takes me five more minutes to find the small sentence at the end saying “But not Fantasy.”
Or… “I’m not specific on what I like.” Except he/she doesn’t sell any fantasy. Which I have to check, because it’s just not said.
I can go on, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who went through this. Yes, I know that they can put whatever they want onto their websites. Just saying that it’s mind-numbing when you’ve screened over a hundred agents in one day.
So yeah… needless to say, I’m going to go curl up with a book.
