Query Day is coming!


Okay, people! It's time to start polishing up those queries.

On Monday, October 12th, I'm going to post a call for queries. Those of you who want help on your query letter will post it in the comments, and I'll post some feedback.


If the query needs more than a cursory tweak or two, i may rewrite it for you.

Now, keep in mind, I may have received my revision letter(s) by then, (yeah, I might end up getting my notes for DRIVEN and my notes for YOU WISH at the same time! EEK!) so I can't promise I'll be able to give feedback on every query. I'll get as far as I can until it's time for me to do something else. I may go back and continue through later in the week if I've got the time.

The only condition is you're okay with the fact that your query will be public, becuase I think it's important you let others read and learn too, to see what works and what doesn't.  

My next post on my "road to publication" series is on query letters, so if you're still wrestling with it stay tuned for that post!

Congratulationd on getting your book published once again. :) I'm proud of you. :) Good luck with your notes on your two books.

all right! that's so awesome that you're going to give free critiques just like that. did you ever choose a winner from the last contest? i never saw it posted, so i dunno if i missed out on the winner or if the winner was a private announcement.
