Do you find it odd when an author queries two projects back-to-back? Due to revision work, I have two novels ready for submission at the same time. I know each project must be queried on its own merits, so as long as I treat each individually, does it matter if I query the same agent with both, one right after the other? (Separate query letters, of course, and neither one makes a reference to the other.) Is there any reason I shouldn't do this?Because I won't know anything about your revisions, I'll only know you queried a polished finished novel last week, and now this week you have another one. I can intuit you've got a couple books in various stages of vision and revision, but seeing another novel this soon does give me pause.
There are enough agents in this world to stagger submissions such that sufficient time has elapsed between queries. I'd say six months or so.
This isn't any kind of industry standard. It's my sense of how to approach things. You might ask this of Jessica Faust over at BookEndsLLC. They're doing some very cool stuff on YouTube and they might be looking for questions just like this.
