The agents agree: Once you have an agent or publisher interested in your work, don’t get caught up in the initial excitement and immediately say yes. Take a day or a couple of days (up to a week is usually acceptable) to thoroughly consider whether or not this is the best decision for you and your book, especially if you’ve already invested the time, money and energy into self-publishing it. This is one of just a few moments of power you’ll have in the author-agent-publisher relationship. Embrace it.
