Why is it that every single agency out there (and there are a ton) is looking for something completely different in their queries? 10 pages, single spaced, 25 pages double spaced, 2 chapters, writing credits, knowledge of subject material, why did you choose this agency, and I can go on… There is no standard formula. I have to read query/submission guidelines for each and every agency, and sometimes each agent in the agency.
The only good news is that each reply, although a rejection, has said to keep trying…
I’m taking that as positive!
