Getting back into the query game. These suckers truly never get easier to write!
Our library continues coming together. Realized most of it is unpacked...if piled around in a sorting-by-series effort. But shelves are coming together thus the library slowly comes together. One day, it will be unpacked and organized, and we can enjoy it in peace instead of the current chaos. =)
Time to get productive...
Short Story +4k today.

I just received a form rejection from a query I sent out 6 months ago...
RC LewisDidn't MarcyKate get one after she had her agent and book deal ... and it was a rejection of the PRIOR manuscript?

mlebleekI got one today too! I thought I'd contacted all the agents I queried but I guess not this one! I wonder if it was the same agent.....

LicentiaMy record was 14 months after querying, and the message was simply that they'd changed their submission rules and I was welcome to resubmit...

Alright, forget my last update! I've started working on my debut novel, which incidentally is going to be a series even though I told myself starting with a stand-alone would be better. However when I made the stand-alone, it told me it was a series suprise! So I've got the first book mostly fleshed out but I don't know what the series title is just yet. Onward! I'd love to get this novel finished this year!
this website is awesome now that i know my way around!
IsabelOdonnellIt really is! I love the user friendly interface, and the people are nice, too. :-)
