I'm new to this and just in the process of querying agents with my first novel. I would really appreciate some advice from others going through same thing as I'm feeling a bit isolated and this is all new to me.
At the moment I'm looking to send off another batch of query letters. I've had several rejections and not heard back from other agencies. I've sent off about twelve so far in two batches. I have read up on query letters/synopsis etc. but I haven't had any professional help with these.
I have had some positive feedback about my writing from agents which made me a little hopeful, however my novel has a slight fantasy edge to it and I read this could put some agencies off. Recently one requested the full manuscript, however then this was rejected without any feedback.
This has left me unsure about whether I should leave things as they are and just keep trying different agencies, or whether I need to go back to the manuscript/edit query letter etc. I'm really unsure what to do before proceeding and wonder whether anybody could offer any advice.
