Many thanks for all of this helpful information. I totally understand if you don't have time to answer this question, but I'm wondering about the process. Jane Friedman offers a sample permission request letter, which includes specifying your work's publisher, publication date, and print run. But some small presses seem to want you already to have gotten permissions before submitting. I don't quite see how one would ask for (or grant) open-ended permission to a writer who doesn't yet have a publisher, never mind a publication date and a specified print run.

I read this when you posted it but am just now thinking of a question, lol.

When are epigraphs added? Do you send your manuscript to an agent with an epigraph already in the manuscript? Is that something that you talk to your agent about? Sorry if I missed this answer. Love learning from the newsletter.
