I have written a series of picture books, and queried the first book. After replies and careful consideration, I have concluded that the series should start with the second book. Can I requery agents with this second book, even though it is from the same series as the book being scrapped?If so, would you address this in the query letter, and how would you do it?
Yes, you can query the agents again.
Don't mention the first book.
However, don't expect different results. If an agent liked the idea behind the series enough to pursue
it you would have gotten an email saying "what other books do you have in this series."
