What advice would you give to other authors in the query trenches?

I’ve been where you are, and it gets better.


What was the most important question you asked when interviewing agents?

Asking to speak to current clients—or clients at the agency in general, if the agent was new—was incredibly helpful for me to get a sense of client happiness and any bumps they had experienced in their journeys. Plus, it connected me to other authors immediately!


How did you know your book was ready to submit?

I went through two extensive revisions with my mentor, ran the final version by a trusted batch of CPs, and then queried once the manuscript was the best I felt I could make it at the time.
