So my manuscript is pretty good. Actually, it's beautiful. Not perfect, but with a little help from my readers, it will be really good. However, I wrote a query and sent it off to an agent that I think will love it. I only sent it to one because I wanted to test the query letter. The query was rejected. I rewrote it, because I highly suspected that's why they didn't want any chapters. However, I want to send my new query to the same agent. Honestly, the new query is fabulous in comparison and makes it seem like a totally different book, though it is the exact same thing. I can't believe I ever sent the first one (well tenth one) anyway now that I have a much better one. Live and learn, I guess.
So here's the deal...Can I re-query the same agent with my new and much improved letter? Or do I suffer for my mishap and try other agents on my list? I know I will likely have to query dozens of agents anyway. Actually, I plan on it. (I'm not delusional.) But I like this one and think she will do a good job representing. I don't want to break any unwritten rules either.
