Have you heard of or used an “editorial agent”? The right one is a writer’s best friend. Once they decide to accept your manuscript they help you polish it so that they are sending the best example possible to editors. Kelly, at Pub Crawl, is one of these special agents and she lets us peek into the process.

For both of my clients I quoted about a month (give or take) to get them their editorial letter. I was late both times. *headdesk* A much more realistic timeline for me personally is probably two months. If I was able to put absolutely everything else in my life and work on hold I could probably get an edit done in a week. But alas, the power to stop time does not belong to me. Two months it is! (And I’ll never overpromise on a deadline again. The guilt consumed me).
