Re: How many people do you query?

I have a list of my top 30 agents. They are numbered and I plan to start with the bottom 3 and work my way up.

Re: Ask Nathan

Hi Nathan! I first have to say I have adored your blog for the past year since I started writing my manuscript. Its been a priceless resource. Other agent blogs out there are "good" and helpful but even the way yours is set up just feels so inviting and open. Not so intimidating. Okay so my question...
