(1) My novel is finished, but I'm still editing and slightly revising 10 out of the 35 chapters (and expect to finish them by late June 2014); should I send you a "proper" query now or wait until I am through?
(2) Your personal page instructs writers to send you "a query letter that includes the first 3-5 pages of the novel," whereas your agency, Fine Print Literary Management, instructs writers to "Send a query letter and synopsis and the FIRST two chapters via email." Which should I follow? Which do you prefer?
(1) you always always always wait to query me until your novel is absolutely finished and ready to go. Unlike a lot of other agents, I answer my queries promptly. You can fully expect to hear from me the week you query or the day after. If you're not ready to go, I notice. And I only want to read your very best work. You get ONE shot at this, and I want you make it your best.
(2) Send me the first 3-5 pages of the ms, no synopsis and a query letter. It's confusing on the FPLM site, I know.
