Of about fifty queries, I had only one full request for the manuscript.
Going to send out another fifteen or so queries, but I'm not holding my breath.
I've written the best version of this novel that I can, and there's not much more to be done. Self publishing is still on the table, but the timing would have to be right. For the time being, the manuscript will sit on the shelf as I return to working on my second novel. Just need to implement a couple of final revisions first, before sending it out one last time.
