Good. And good luck!

I don't have an exclusive with the agent who has my full. This makes me feel better about that, especially since it seems Ms. Reid and this other agent frequent each other's company. They may hold the same view.

I stumbled across Janet's blog before I came here today and read that post. Well put from an agent's perspective, and timely, considering some of the discussions we've had here lately. It will definitely figure into any future negotiations I have.

My vote goes to giving them a one-month exclusive if they are really interested and I'm really interested.
