"After the Call" is a new feature on my blog! It chronicles what happens after an agent offers you representation: how to choose the right agent, how to communicate with your new agent, what the revision process is like, etc. For previous posts in this series, please click here, here, here, and here.
Today at Adventures in Space, I'd love to welcome the fabulous Kate Hart! I've been a fan of Kate's blog for awhile now and I also love her posts at YA Highway. (Haven't read YA Highway? Go read it right now!)
I thought Kate would be the perfect writer to interview for the "After The Call" series because she received a whopping SEVEN offers of representation a few months ago! Holy cow! How in the world did she choose between them?!
Read on to find out!
1.) Can you tell us about the book that landed you your agent?
2.) Oh, cool premise---I'm really intrigued to find out how your novel all plays out! So what was your querying process like for this book? For instance, how many queries did you send out? And what was your request rate like?
3.) Now that you've found representation, what kind of advice do you have for writers looking for an agent?
4.) Huh, interesting! I can see how blogging and getting involved online can really help in landing representation.
What was your reaction after you got your first offer? Were you jumping your joy? Or jittery with anxiety? (I was so anxious when I got my first call!)
