Lots of research to do trying to match our science fiction story with agent wants. Sending out queries in batches of 10 or so to see how agents respond to our query letter. If we get too many rejections in a row, we'll know it's time to tweak the query letter again.
Persistence, perseverance and patience - the 3 P's of the querying process. Oh yeah, throw in some luck with that too! Hopefully, we'll catch the eye of an agent this fall.
In the meantime, it's back to the hero of our WIP. BTW, we changed his name to Rathbone Blare - has a nice ring to it doesn't it?
