I want to traditionally publish, which means my next step is to find an agent for my completed manuscript.
My novel is in its third complete draft (fifth in parts!) and the first five chapters have been reviewed by Book Country, the first two by my critique group, and the first chapter is currently being critiqued by an agent. However, I’d love to have someone look over the complete manuscript and critique.
My current revision is working on pacing, since that was an issue brought up by the previous reader. My goal is to get a version I’m happy with by Sunday so that I can submit to another agent-run contest on Monday (cross my fingers!)
My plan is to hopefully get my final draft revisions done this month so that I can start querying agents late next month, so I’ll take all the critique notes i can get!
