I Need Your Advice

Many of you know that I am seeking an agent with my YA novel, The Ultimate Evil. However, I'm wondering if that's my best course of action.


You see, there's been a lot on the web lately about agents and editors wanting (needing!) middle grade fiction. I have my two completed MG novels, Khaladin and Help! My Parents Are From Outer Space! What I'm wondering is this: do you think I should query those ten other agents I found for The Ultimate Evil, or do you think it'd be a better decision to wait on that novel and pick one of the other two to pitch?

Speaking of pitching these novels, there's a poll in the sidebar of my blog about which MG story I should pitch. Even if you already told me your opinion several posts ago, please vote over there. It's an easier way for me to keep count. :)

"huh?"- took the thoughts out of my head...lemme think... wow great idea it's better to give the people what they want. I say shelve the UE and start soliciting your other two books while the market is asking for them!!!
i know it's a dumb question, but why cant you do both at once? (you might have to cuz the poll is at a draw) in that case i say wichever is the closest to being 'done'

I'm not completely sure what you're asking. All I know is that you should query for each book until you feel like you've exhausted the possibliities.

Well, I'm just wondering if I have a better chance with one of the middle grade stories. I love The Ultimate Evil, but I do wonder its publishing quality (at this point in time). This is something I really need to pray about.
