Hey Guys

I'm sorry to bother you but I was hoping someone could advise me.  I have finished the fourth draft of my first story/book and I am now thinking that it maybe ready for me to send to an agent or two.  I have done my homework, I know that I have to send it to those that deal with my particular genre, although I have learnt that isn't as easy as it sounds, but what I would like to clarify is how I present it.

Some say that they prefer double space, other require 1.5 spacing.  The font is going to be Times New Roman, but font size appears to be an issue, should I use the size 12 or 11?

I appreciate your help on this matter.

Many thanks in advance

Stay cool

Pip

Just follow their guidelines. Standard is TNR 12 with double spacing, but most agents tell you how much they want and how they want it.
