Agent Feedback!

Finally! It actually hasn’t been that long, it only feels like forever to me. I heard back from the one agent that had my full ms today. Overall, I think the feedback was of a positive note. They didn’t say that it sucked or that I should find a day job, so that’s positive, right?

They gave me a few suggestions for things that I could improve which are totally doable in my mind. So, I’m excited to get started! I’m going to let their suggestions settle in a little before I really get to work, but I’m really looking forward to moving ahead with the changes.

While it wasn’t the slam dunk I was hoping for, they said I can go ahead and send them my next ms when I have one. That has to be a good sign, don’t you think?

It feels good to finally have some feedback!

    Yes! It’s totally a great sign. And rare for a first effort. You go, girl!

      Thanks Terri! I’m hoping I’ll be able to use the critique I received to make my story even better and more irresistible for the next agent.

    The agent said you should send them your next manuscript? Sounds like a slam dunk to me!

    1. hthurmeier says:

      Yes they did! I’m looking forward to the time when I can d that.

    Sounds good. Now get to the next one soon.

      Hi Janet,
      I’m hoping to spend maybe another week working through the revisions they suggested while it’s still fresh in my mind and I’m excited about them. Then I’ll get started on something new!

    Hi Heather!
    Great news!
    When an editor takes the time to give you feedback, and offers to read your next manuscript, they definately see something they like. And that’s SUPER!
