Hi, I'm new here & have a number of questions I haven't yet found proper answers to. If anyone has any advice I'd be very appreciative! I've self-published a novel which won an award. It attracted the interest of some publishers in Europe when showcased at the Bologna Book Fair. I'm wondering what kind of letter to send them, or if there's a template out there like the ones for query letters. There seems to be a lack of information on how to deal with manuscript requests. Also, should I be perusing an agent while I wait to hear back, or should I wait to see what happens first? Finally, am I limited to working with agents in my own country, or can I contact ones in the US also? Thanks!
