Hello everyone, A few years ago, I had the chance to participate in an agent speed interview session. What this is is every author gets four agents to sit with for a period of ten minutes each. During these ten minutes, we sell our goods. The good thing is you get face time with an agent. The bad thing is that most agents will tell you to send them the first X pages or chapters of your work, but only because they don't want to say "no" face to face. I got three out of four chances to send and, of those three, two rejections (and one act of silence). One rejection seemed promising. I know that agents are incredibly busy people. They have a chance to do nothing but read author's pitches or sample chapters. So if you get anything other than a form letter, you're almost there. I got an actual typed letter (not a form letter), expressing this: This is quite obviously something he took the time to write, and so I felt very encouraged that I got a personalized response, even if it was a rejection. My question is this: Should I resend this to the same agent? I know that he rejected it already once, but I've learned a lot about writing and have polished my manuscript. He might change his mind... I hope. Or should I move on? I originally received this letter in 2007, so four years and some change have passed. He most likely won't remember me. If I should move on, does this mean the work saleable enough to shop around? I have no other writing credits I can boast about, so I'm not sure if I'll get past the query letter phase.
