After attending the Nola Stars Conference, I’ve been busy these passed few weeks working to polish up my synopsis and chapters so I can send out the requested material. No easy task for me. It was easier to do book reports back in high school. Why do so many of us find it hard to write a summary of our own story? For me, I think it’s because I know way too much and struggle with pinpointing the most important details in the story. To me they’re all important.
Now on to my next dilemma. Since I will have this ready, I’m wondering if I should go ahead and query several other prospects. It takes so long for a response in most cases, it just doesn’t seem feasible to wait until I’m contacted by one of these two before sending it on to the others on my list.
What is your plan of attack for querying? Do you have a set number you query each time? Do you query everyone on your list? Or do you wait to send out anything else until you hear back from someone who has made a request to read more material?
