If a publisher has made an offer on a book currently subbed out to agents, is an email with subject line of: publication offer made on ‘title of manuscript’ sufficient to bring it to the agent’s attention? #AskAgent

Replying to @ShellyCFineArt

Yes, definitely including that you have a publication offer in the subject line so they know it's time-sensitive versus just you nudging if they've read it yet (and congrats on your offer if this is the case right now for you!) #askagent

An agent once emailed me apologizing for the delayed response to my partial, saying she had put my manuscript in her "Maybe" pile. I thought agents were always clear about a rejection or acceptance. #AskAgent

Replying to @RachnaChhabria1

Sometimes they might be waiting on second reads, or on the fence because they love certain aspects about the book but not others, or think it needs work but are trying to figure out if they have the vision for how to fix it, etc. #askagent
