Calling all authors.

I’m curious.
My agent is gearing up for a September submission for my trilogy (yes, that is me trying not to be too squee-tastic). And seeing how I’ve never done this before, I’m a teeny bit nervous (again with the understatement).

What has the submissions process involved for you?

How involved are you?

Do you prefer a play by play from your agent (and if you do, what does said play by play involve?) or do you just want the call that says yes, we’ve sold?

What does your agent ask you for before you submit? Do you do a syn or a pitch?

All advice and information would be greatly appreciated!
