after the call

"After The Call" is a series on my blog that chronicles what happens after you get an offer of representation from a literary agent. For instance, how do you choose between multiple offers? How do you communicate with your new agent? And what is the revision process like?



I decided to start this series because I noticed a lot of blogs focused on how to gain representation, but I didn't find very many that talked about what happened after you signed on the dotted line. Thus, I decided to kick-start "After The Call" to hopefully fill this void.
