It's not always about how "good" or "bad" your books are. Just remember that.

LucidDreamerNo. The market rules, and the market isn't always about quality.

Just a reminder that I have somewhere around 80 interviews with literary agents on my blog. http://www.michelle4laughs.com/search/label/Query Questions

HOORAY! A picture.
I wanna change my picture and can't...
The worst feeling is when you want to write, you open the document, and you realize you left off at a meal scene on an empty stomach

Hi booksbybrendan -thanks for your critique. I hope my suggestions were helpful as well. I saw you got a few other critiques, so I won't bombard you with any more, but since your story does have two points of view...well it depends, sometimes people will write a query using both characters. Since your character don't interact together, I would suggest just focusing on one. I hope that helps. Good luck!
Is there such a thing as reading TOO much?

Just trying to meet people~
I'm currently writing a science fiction novel (hopefully for adults or young adults). Currently, I'm on my fifth draft where I am retyping the entire draft. I have found this method brings certain strengths (like catching flow issues) and weaknesses (my terrible habit of omitting words when typing). While trying to balance my other job, I find it increasingly difficult to find the energy to write. Of course, I have friends reading my novel, but they have short attention spans. I hope...
