...and I sent in fifty of them. How long should I wait? We've had a bit of email back and forth prior to me sending the pages, so I thought I might hear back sooner than normal. Anyone any experience of this?

Oh, I've never posted here before - hello! smile

Congratulations on the pages request!

As for how long it will take - well, how long's a piece of string, really? It might just be a few days but if they're busy they might not get to it for several weeks. I read a blogpost by one agent where she started reading a sub and was absolutely loving it (and eventually signed the author) but had a period of two weeks when she simply couldn't get to it because she had other stuff to read that had to take priority. So while they often will be quicker (mine took a week) if it takes longer it's not necessarily a bad sign.

I would chase after 4-6 weeks, probably nearer 6 if it runs over Christmas/New Year. Good luck!

Hi, thank you for replying! They actually got in touch the day after I posted the thread and asked to see the rest. So excited! Back to checking emails every three minutes! grin

Great stuff!
Now you need to keep submitting elsewhere, keep writing the next book and keep away from the email wink

Oh how exciting for you Nelloopsy - congrats on this achievement, even if it doesn't come to anything further this time (but I so hope that it does!).

Tell us more. What's your project? How long have you been writing?
