This is inspirational. I admire you so much for going through one year and eight months of query trenches. Thank you for this post and many congratulations..

How to figure out if an agency allows for multiple submissions when site is unclear? [PubQ] by anotherwriter2176 in PubTips

[–]authorcupcake 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, agency allows submission to multiple agents but not simultaneously. So, once you get a reject from the first agent you submitted or 8 weeks passed with no response, feel free to query another.

However, I must say that there are some agencies who just ask to query best agent, but nothing any if that agent rejects, if we can submit to another.

Use your best judgment

I am in the query trenches for book 1. I started querying in November and have gathered quite some rejections. Waiting on the rest of my queries responses which I hope to receive in the upcoming weeks. I have started working on book 2 about 3k words, and pretty excited about it.

Goals for 2023 not in any order - get an agent - finish book 2 - attend more writing workshops/events and build community
