Agent Responds

I'm not quite sure what to make of the agent's interest. Over five weeks have passed since I sent the full manuscript, and not a word from her. I emailed and asked how it was going. She expressed real interest in the book, and interest in seeing my other book.

Her response was real short, however, not what I would expect from someone interested in the piece, but she did use the title by name.

Nothing says I'm interested like a contract, however.

I have resumed work on The Diva of Mud Flats, but I find I'm writing very brief scenes of mostly dialog. As one reviewer of my short story, Evolution of the Apes, said, it reads like a radio play. I will probably embellish on the second pass, kind of the opposite of normal.

Still Waiting...

So, I haven't received a rejection yet, but the four weeks have passed that it would take to typically read a book and respond. I don't know if that is good or bad. I want to contact her, but don't want to push. If she is interested in my book, then I'd like to offer her my completed Virus manuscript rather than randomly posting queries to the world again.

On a side note, I find myself being sucked into the world of music again with a Jazz Quintet. I also have been attracting a lot of interest professionaly (computers) but from all over the country, New York, Denver, and Boston for example. And to top it off, I have been offered a chance to do some part time work above and beyond any other full time I get elsewhere. There is not enough time in the day, but working away from home will effectively nix the music, at least here.
