This is probably a very silly question but I have just received a request from an agent for my synopsis only, after sending just a query letter as outlined in the submission guidelines. I know from browsing forums etc that this agent usually asks for at least a partial so I'm wondering if this shows he is not very interested? I really don't understand why someone would request only a synopsis as it's very hard to get a good idea of someone's writing without reading at least some of the manuscript. It would also be a lot more convenient you would think to request the first 3 chapters so that he doesn't have to then come back to me again.... I'm thinking I should probably just write this one off.
