Needless to say, I was hesitant. I've got lot going on, and... okay, I'll come right on and say it... I was afraid. This gal seemed awesome, but her querytracker listing didn't say she wanted suspense. (And the last thing anyone needs is another rejection.) My friend
I hemmed and hawed, but promised to send a query. I had planned on waiting until Monday, but Sunday night, I got a wild hair, gathered my materials together, tweaked the query letter and sent that puppy off. I wasn't expecting anything to come of it.
I got a reply around lunch on Monday. She wanted a full! Coulda knocked me over with a feather.
Anyway, after the Hubs went back to work, I sent out the full and the synopsis she asked for. Keep your fingers crossed.
But well wishes isn't why I'm writing this post. (Well, they're always nice, but not my main goal here.) I wanted to let you know so you can maybe see that sometimes, when you least expect it, good things can happen.
So, send those queries out. Even if you're crazy busy. Even if you're pretty sure they're not the right agent for your manuscript - because the information out there says they aren't. Even if you don't think you can take one more rejection. Because you never know. You could get a request for full.
And who knows? It might turn into an offer of representation. Stranger things have happened.
I'm not holding my breath, but I am crossing my fingers. ;o)
