: : : What if you send you novel to an agent and get no reply?. How long should you wait? Should I send it to another one?
: : Like Jer said, just because you didn't get a reply doesn't necessarily mean you got rejected. But you might have. That is the problem. Some agent sites say if they don't like your novel they won't reply. But how do you know if they even read it?
: You don't. What is the deal with these agents? Can't they at least send back some kind of standard reply saying they don't have time to read your query right now? There are automatic email programs that do that. It could say how long before they'll reply.
Yeah, and another thing, they say they want to know if you've sent it to anybody else (presumably so they can reject it). But how do you know if the first agent is still going to look at it?
