Anyone got tips for submission to an agent?
« on: May 07, 2009, 03:54:17 AM »
I am about to consider submitting my work to an agent at the end of this year.

Does anyone have any tips, based on their own experiences,  of do's and don'ts,  we could publish here to help others and myself.

Here are my questions

In what kind of packaging should I sent my novel or the first three chapters?

Should I put a "front page" on my synopsis?

Should I include the Acknowledgements page?

Should I include the Background page?  (Providing background info on the place where the novel is set?)

I have all this in a book, but it's often better to have a discussion on these points as well, to gain the benefit of other writers' experiences.
