 Day 1… Part 3

07.06.2010

I got some really helpful feed back on my query letter from a writers forum this evening. Taking the those tips to do some re-working before I send out more.

In the meantime… Cupcake Wars is on.

 Day 1… Part 2

07.06.2010

Sent out 4 queries.

- Received one form rejection (a general dear author letter saying the agent has decided to pass on your work based on your letter of summary) exactly 36 minutes after I sent it. 

I was totally okay with this because I spent a week pretty much reading up on how to expect several million rejections before you get some good news. Odd thing was this particular agent was on twitter not 10 minutes later talking about how they blew through a large number of queries in an hour and only approved 6. Didn’t let that get me down,though I felt a little bad for the person who’s query they openly mocked using examples.

2010 has been a pretty positive year for me so far. I’m going to keep this positivity thing going and hope for the best… ?

 Day 1 of Querying…

07.06.2010

So I wrote the book. I’m happy with it and completely okay with the fact that it has a specific audience in mind. I’m not looking for everyone to love me or my book (although that might be interesting for a day or two). I am however looking for an agent to represent this book and bring it to a publisher that is willing to put it in people’s hands.

I’m gonna blog about it as I go, cause blogging is the thing to do these days. And we’ll see sooner or later what has becomes of this tale I wrote.

This picture has nothing to do with my querying process. I just like wonder woman.
