I once gave detailed comments on a manuscript, and the writer went to a different agent using my changes. #neveragain #agentlife ##querywin

I think it is fair to wait for a week for the author's decision. Some ask for two weeks to check with other agents. #querywin #agentlife

Advice: in any agency contract be clear about the scope, commission, termination clause. If they are not clear, ask. #querywin #agentlife
