If you’re querying agents I hope you want to be traditionally published and be able to work in a collaborative partnership. However, some of you might get an agent and think: “Is this what I really wanted?”
Those of you with entrepreneurial spirits might feel resentful if you don’t get a deal right away, knowing you could self publish.
Those of you with trust issues might not be ready to pass off the baton to get to the finish line.
Those of you with friends in the business might feel jealousy creep up over your shoulder when it feels like everyone around you is getting book deals before you.
Steady and affirm your intentions in this process.
