Nearly there. A few tweeks to do on the synopsis and it'll be in the post tomorrow. Have decided on a mailout of 3:
1. A query letter and synop to editor I met at party.
2. A query letter, synop, first 3 chapters and story outline to the other agent who was interested in me at same time as Agent 2. I haven't contacted her since she e-mailed to say she liked novel 3 & wanted to see more (since postponed for novel 4).
3. As above to
him, as a 'what the heck' really. (Link from maud). He's the agent I went to see with my writing group and sent my very first novel idea to.
