how long?

Postby stormowl7 » Fri Jun 13, 2014 2:56 pm

I was wondering if there is a minimum waiting time before resubmitting an edited query/synopsis (having edited my manuscript) to a publisher/agent who rejected your original query/synopsis?

Thank you,
Magali

Technically, unless they ask you to resubmit, don't do it. Move on. But and however. After enough time has passed, say since months, and after you really have completely rewritten/revised everything, go ahead and re-query, with this explanation in the cover letter.

Leave it up to them. If they like, they can delete it all as soon as they read the cover letter, or they read everything. Just don't try to sneak a re-query through. This is what irritates agents and editors.

what about a situation where an agent has posted they are looking for a certain type of novel - - a type that you submitted to them unsuccessfully 14 months ago?

same thing... unless they invited you to resubmit after editing, don't!
