The Agent Game

A viewpoint on publishing

The pleasure of a reply is appreciated

In this age of server errors, spam filters and other communications issues, here’s a simple rule:

When an agent writes to lets you know that they’ve read your requested partial or full manuscript, it’s a good idea to send some sort of reply.

I think it goes without saying that your response should be, at the very least, professional. If the agent has taken the time to send you extensive comments you may even want to thank him or her, especially if you might approach that same agent for representation again someday.
