One grumpy literary agent and a sea of query fails

39 notes

I have a 10,000 word manuscript which i would like to have published. I am trying to find an agent. My goal is to write a sequel to the book. What are my odds of finding an agent?

About the same as E.L. James’s odds of being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

    10,000 words is not a manuscript. It’s barely longer than a short story, tbh.
