I realised I forgot to write an update on how things went with my query after PitMad. After sending my query to the literary agent, I got a response within a few hours for the full manuscript!
I still can’t believe it! While I’m not having high hopes of it going any further than this, I’m so excited that I even made it this far. My story premise was interesting enough to request the full book – that’s something! I’ve sent the full manuscript to her, but from what I understand the wait for a reply to that can be months, so I’m just sitting tight now.
Even if it’s a no (which I’m expecting), I still consider my first ever PitMad event a success. This was way more than I ever expected and I’m stoked.
Now, I just need to perfect those manuscripts to be able to actually land an agent. Or potentially self-publish. Another possibility.
