The Agent Hunt

So far my last query blitz has resulted in:
2 full requests
3 partial requests
4 rejections
plus about 12 queries outstanding

All the responses came back within five days max. I’m wondering if that’s the way of things. Do agents tend to respond right away if they’re semi-interested and the non-responses are either waiting to be rejected or no response = not interested.

Anyway, I’m quite pleased. This is the first time my requests have outnumbered my rejections, at least for now. And of course, I’m trying to guess what tipped the scales. Is the new opening working better? Do the contest finals I listed actually make a difference? Or is the snazzy new blurb just a tad bit catchier?

You just can’t take the scientist out of me.
