I still believe it is unprofessional to make comments about specific queries on Twitter, and there are still a couple of agents I won’t query based on (what I perceive to be) their hostility to writers.
But I’ve decided that I need to set aside my tender feelings while going through the query gauntlet. It’s business. That is all. If no agent out there thinks she can sell my book, then this book isn’t going to have an agent.
Notice I said she? I have my prejudices too, I guess. Hmm. Shouldn’t I have ironed out all my failings by now?
It really bothers me that I’m having to do a lot more work than Mrs. Muir did to get my manuscript published.
