Query is good. Agent I want to query, I can't because he edited my book once before he was an agent. =( Hoping to find gold on #MSWL today on Twitter
Query letter; my new tiger .
Does anyone know of an agent who works with anthologies?
Every time I listen to Stahlmann I want to work on a particular novel series of mine. If only I had the time... =(
And forward to Gen Con

Finally done with my query. Time to try to get this book agented. WOOT.
KL SanchezGood luck and congrats! The query is the hardest part of all, IMO.

It's been so long since I've been on here. How is everyone? How's writing?

KL SanchezWB, I'm not writing a lot, myself. Between two jobs, I don't have the time I want for writing nor art, which makes me sad since those are two favorite things in the world. I really need a new job. =/

Has anyone else published their stiff on iBooks? Is it just me or is it just utterly un-user friendly?
Cheryl B. DaleI used Smashwords for the first two, then I learned how to convert to epub myself. But I hired someone with a Mac to upload it to ibooks for me. So far so good.

AQCrewIt is very difficult, indeed. Personally, we think it's worth it if you are in this for the long term. Apple only promotes authors who publish direct with them, and it's very important to be able to control your own book's category selection and change it on a dime -- if need be. That said, if you really can't make it happen, we've heard much better things about D2D over Smashwords. Good luck.

"We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories."
Finally going to send my revised query out.
Scribe of the Seven
Asking a question to everyone: I have recently started a blog on Wizzley, and was wondering if I should tell agents about it in my Query? The content on the blog doesn't have much to do with my work, but it is writing credit. Just wondering.

Can people please stop being condescending about stuff? By the way, I double space at the end of a sentence because that is the way I was taught by professional educators.
Scribe of the SevenI honestly try not to, but that was just something that bothered me. It's the proper form in Canada and the UK, so that's the way I do it.

AjaxWell, if you seeking an agent in the U.S. it's essential for you to follow the American way. I've followed the British English since preschool, but I am learning the American standards.
Ask the members to elaborate their comments. I think most of the them will clarify their statements.
But I do agree with jadah. If the comments are downright evil ignore them or REPORT them. :)
May you have a pleasant experience at AQC. Hopefully the actions of some i...
