I didn’t set out to blog on this topic, but a question came up in the comments to my First Query post, and I hope to address it here. So you’ve just received a call or an email from an agent, and he or she is making some positive noises about your manuscript. Congratulations! The first thing you should do is celebrate! Only possibly not over the phone with the agent. In my case, that would have been a bad idea. My Golden Heart® call revealed me to be a screamer.
