I figured it might be of interest if I started documenting the numbers surrounding my hunt for representation. I keep all this in a spreadsheet, recording the agent’s name, their business, their email, and the date they were queried. It’s handy and helps me keep track of everything.
So without further ado, the numbers:
- Total Agents Queried: 81
- Unanswered Queries: 51
- Query Rejections: 30
- Partials Requested: 3
10% positive interest in my manuscript. Not bad. I’ll take it.
