My Kafka Novel is Finished

My first novel, In Search of Kafka is finally finished. I sent out the first query letter with a sample chapter to a literary agent in New York. If he does not agree to represent me, I will send out more queries to other agents. Once I have an agent, he'll sell the novel to a publisher. Once a publisher buys it, I will then work with an editor assigned to my book by the publisher, to make improvements. After that it will be published. Hopefully, by the beginning of next year my novel will be in bookstores.
