A Big Thank You To The Courteous Authors

This morning, I received an email from an author who sent me a project for consideration. The message was short and sweet.

She simply noted that she had received an offer of representation from another agent and wanted to let me know she had accepted.

What this author did was right on the money and I want to thank her for it. We know that authors are sending out projects as multiple submissions. This is standard. But the nice thing is that she kept the agents informed so that we didn't end up reading a project that had already been accepted by someone else.

Showing courtesy like this will get authors a long way in this business! For this author, I want to wish her all the best.
