    Lis,

    Sure, this is a common problem. I would not submit a new project to an agent who is still actively considering an older project (most ask that you query one project at a time). However,...

    Dee,

    Hmm, well the workshop as a whole covers many of your questions. Maybe after your read through the lessons, come back if you have points of clarification. That way I don't just repeat a lot...

    I won't lie. It's very hard to get an agent. Or, at least, a good agent. But then, what about this industry is easy? Not a lot. Anything worth having is something you have to fight for. :)

    Of course! That's why it's good to be aware of your agent agreement. But every situation is different, so I can't really tell you "This is where X will happen."

    That's the tricky thing. It's very hard to tell if an agent is doing this. Sometimes you can tell from the rejection letters. So make sure you're getting copies.

    As for television or film rights,...

    Rae,

    I guess I don't understand why you aren't querying for the first book in series? Unless it's already gone out to everyone or something. Or maybe that's the book you're talking about that has...
