So my novel's been with an agent for three months and the queries I was invited to send have gone unanswered. Although I'm disappointed I'm not too surprised. Agents have clients, clients have books and books are either going into print or need to be presented to publishers. I know I'm somewhere towards the bottom of the list of priorities but you know how it is! For one thing I want to know, one way or another. For another he should jolly well read it anyway because it's really, really good! He'd love it, honest!
