is this thing on?
Famous big shoes for Paula, who writes, “I recently submitted my first book to several agents. This is my first time, and I really wasn’t sure what I was doing. I got names off the internet. Anyway, two of the agents requested a partial. One of them requested the full the next day, and the day after that called me with an offer for representation. She was nice, and guided me through the q&a. I haven’t heard back from the other one yet, and there are still queries out there. Bottom line: I’m hoping to be with a bigger agency, even though she and her agency have plenty of sales in my genre. How long can I keep her waiting for an answer? She didn’t give me a timeframe. I’m thinking of using this offer to try and get the other agencies to offer. Is that appropriate?”
