You haven't heard back.
Not so excellent.
Here are your choices:
A: lie on the floor, drum your
B: email again asking if I've gotten the query;
C: email again, mentioning you haven't heard from me therefore I must not have received it.
What's the right answer?
It's a trick question of course.
It's the right answer because the other two involve emailing me, and that makes them the WRONG ANSWER.
Smart queriers, those of you who read this and other agent blogs, and pay attention, know that you give agents THIRTY DAYS on a query.
Even if they are super-speedy sometimes.
Even if they post tallies of queries received and answered.
This is an unbreakable rule: I do NOT want to hear from you about your query until 30 days have gone by. After that, email to say you haven't heard and include the query again.
There are NO exceptions to this: NONE.
If I've sent you a request for a full, and I haven't heard from you, I WILL followup. In fact, if I don't hear from you after several attempts, I'll post it on this blog, find you, sign you and sell you. Just ask Gary Corby.
I'm sounding rather desperate about this because I am. My email situation is making me crazy. Right now I'm at 416 unanswered emails and that does NOT include queries, fulls, and pending queries. 416 unanswered emails just about the actual day to day business of agenting.
** oops. tks for pointing this out.
