I am in agony about my latest book. I wrote it thinking it will be for querying. I am now doing the last round of edits on it.
The book got no interest on Wattpad, despite being a popular genre of the NA romance, though everyone who read it through the clubs was complimentary.
I also feel bad about investing so much time into polishing it if it doesn’t go anywhere. But, if it doesn’t get interest from Wattpad readers —who ARE the primary target audience for NA romance— this means that it won’t fly with agents, who presumably know better than I do what people want.
But then again, it’s the agent’s job to take a look and confirm to me that the book is of no interest.
So, how do you decide if you query or not —based on the readership potential/success or because you’ve invested time in it, or just hoping for luck?
Would you query a book that is dead in the water on Wattpad?
