QUITE THE QUERY with Stina Lindenblatt and TELL ME WHEN

  Posted by Amy Trueblood , 24 April 2015 · 111 views

    If you ask any writer about the process of connecting with their agent (or publisher), the majority will say the most difficult part was querying.

Monday Musings: Blogging BS and Other Misconceptions
