What do I show a CD when he asks to see “more”?


A CD said they liked my book and they want to see more. I have more stuff, but it isn’t my best stuff, or else I would have put it in my book. By the same token, I don’t like saving any good stuff for when the CD asks to see more either, because I want to show the CD my best stuff when he first meets me.
So my question is, what do I show a CD when he asks to see more? If I show stuff that isn’t as great as the stuff in my book, will he think I wasn’t as great as he thought I was, and will that ruin his impression of me?

intro What do I show a CD when he asks to see more?All your instincts are right—you put your very best in your book and the rest is history. Tell the CD who liked your work that they’ve seen who you are through the book presented. You could ask if they think your book is too thin: not an unusual response and maybe you do need to build on the book with more work of the same high calibre. (You should keep working on it as a matter of course anyway.) To be sure, showing work that’s not as good drags down the whole book. Many CD’s judge you on your weakest work, not your best. That’s true for us. Stick to the plan, Stan.
