I'm seeking to submit my first finished novel to an agent, and I've recently finished writing a synopsis and cover letter. Right now I'm looking over the manuscript itself for a last-minute edit if need be, and something just occurred to me. I might be having a total brainfart about this, but I'll ask anyway. When an agent requests a certain number of sample pages along with a synopsis and query letter, do they need the pages to be full? Like, if the last page of the sample ends in mid-sentence or mid-paragraph, and I don't want to go over the requested page count by including the end of the paragraph on the next page, do I give them the whole page or trim it so it ends at the last full paragraph?
