I added a video to a @YouTube playlist An Agent's Answers to Your Questions on Representation

Today's video was a bit long-winded. I'll try to keep them shorter, but it's every answer I have to the questions you'll be asking an agent when representation is offered. Good luck! #askagent

@BookEndsJessica @actblue If parts of the book I'd like to query have already been published (ebooks on Amazon, I still own all rights), should I still be looking for an agent? Or will that be a problem?

Replying to @shanaschwarz

You can definitely still look for an agent, but you might run into difficulties because parts of the book have already been sold. That makes it harder for the publisher, but without knowing all details it's hard to say #askagent

@BookEndsJessica @chelseasfiction Hi, based on your answer, I have a question: how do you know what the market is at the time? Thanks.

Replying to @atlolis1989

As an author you likely won't. Part of my job is to talk with editors all the time to find out what they're looking for and what they're tired of. I get a sense of what's selling, what's hot, and what's not. #askagent

@BookEndsJessica I fell my Query is a bit long but having a really hard time cutting it. Does having a QL that's a page deter an agent or is ok?

Replying to @LisaLDriscoll

Hmmm. Have you looked at the manuscript? Might that need cutting too? Maybe the query is indicative of something larger? In a nutshell, if you feel it's too long then I would say it's too long. #askagent
