.@Coffee_Is_love Check their guidelines first. Some are "no response means no," and many give expected response times. #AskFuse
If one agent turns it down, is it bad form to query another agent in that same agency if he/she is looking for what you have? #AskFuse
.@Cmiller61408 Usually yes, but we don't have that restriction, for example. Check the agency's guidelines to make sure. #AskFuse
#askfuse Do agents reconsider when authors re-query after making changes? Or do most agents ignore subsequent queries from those rejected?
.@trm5507 You usually get one chance unless the agent invited you to resubmit, so only sub when you know it's ready. #AskFuse
Once you have an offer for your book can you approach an agent you'd like to be repp'd by and what r the odds of a yes #AskFuse
.@Everywoman98 You can, but it depends upon the offer. I highly recommend letting an agent pitch your book instead. #AskFuse
Are CPs and Beta readers good enough for MS revisions/crtqs? Or should one hire an editor prior to querying? #AskFuse
.@TheDawnHusted That all depends upon the CP/beta(s). Often times yes, but it's case by case. More eyes are usually better. #AskFuse
If I sent out partials/fulls to agents met at a conference, but I got outside feedback that strengthened my MS, do I resend? #askfuse
.@NWilson31 You can check in, but note that sending your work out before it was revised may reflect poorly on you. #AskFuse
.@rainforestgardn Ideally. Providing a logical progression makes it easiest for your audience to follow you. #AskFuse
.@mistiyang For nonfiction, when you have a finished proposal. For fiction, when you have a finished manuscript. #AskFuse
.@clairewriter11 That's why revision, beta, & analysis are important. They rarely tell you 100%, but they help. #AskFuse
#AskFuse When is the busiest time of the year for agents and how does this typically impact response times?
.@FinkHernandez It depends upon the agent. Usually the fall and spring are busiest, but there's always work to do. #AskFuse
