Watching the PitchMadness slush readers and see this: "don't start with the weather"...uhm, the weather is kind of importan to my book. I sort of *had* to start with that...but I left it as a passing thought.

Friendly reminder: Query Critique Group is for crits ONLY. Post questions in Query Questions Group to help keep things neat and tidy. Revisions of queries go in the original query's thread. Thanks!
AWExleyA few people keep starting new threads for query revisions. Do you want us to ping you with them as we spot them? I've tried the "friendly reminder" but get ignored.

Jean OramThat would be fine. Otherwise if I'm in there I just delete them--faster than merging threads and hanging out housekeeping reminders. ;)

AWExleyThere's one person with at least 4 threads for their query so far. Have pm'd you details.

Magic sheets & Flow timers. Check out my interview with mystery author Ovidia Yu for great time management tips http://t.co/zuIFP30yMz
Got another rejection today...but it was encouraging. Said my writing was strong, but dystopian was too hard of a sell right now. Got a pretty enthusiastic offer to consider them for my future works. So bad news...peppered with good news!
paladinpeterEverything is a hard sell, all the time, unless you're already a world-famous best-selling author.

I'm now up to three cups of tea that my narrator, Mahala, prepares for herself during the story. She's been interrupted or interrupted herself halfway through each one and been unable to finish the first two. Moments like this I really feel like an evil god.
I have the BEST CPs in the world. So blessed.
Done with my edits! I'm feeling super relieved and satisfied with the changes!
