I wrote earlier some tips on where and how to compile a list of literary agents who you can query for your novel (see Finding a Literary Agent to Query). I wrote it because I was doing just that for my latest novel: looking for agents who were interested in cozy mysteries.
Now the hard part: the waiting. It is now November, and the agent has told me she's finally going to get around to reading my manuscript soon. Hopefully, "soon" is sometime this year.
