The search begins for me! In the past two weeks, I have submitted my manuscript (novel) to seven (UK) literary agents and one of them responded positively to my query and asked for three sample chapters the next morning! It's been five days since, but I have to remain positive. I would like to hear more from others who have gone through the same thing. Does a long wait mean they are taking you seriously, or does it mean they didn't like it and just can't be bothered to respond?
