I am new to the writing field, and I am unpublished. I recently finished the first draft of my manuscript (zombies), found an agent that represents this type of genre (hard to do), and crafted my query letter. I am not certain as to what to do next, but here is a tentative order of things. Is this ok? 1. Have a small group of friends/family read the manuscript, and offer advice 2. First round of revisions 3. Have a reviewing company, or somebody experienced in the business read it and offer good advice 4. Second round of revisions 5. Take a step back, read the whole thing, think hard about it 6. Final round of revisions 7. Have manuscript edited 8. Send query letter to agent 9. Agent accepts 10. Agent gets me published Is this a good order? After researching agents and even drafting my query letter, a painstaking process, I realized that most agents do NOT want queries until the manuscript is entirely finished, which includes revisions and edits. Also, I realize steps 9-10 are unlikely, I am simply writing them down because that WOULD be the order of things, right?
