Thrilled to have found this place, which appears to be full of people in the same frustrated, self-doubt-ridden place as I currently am, along with a bunch of awesome gurus (thank you in advance!).
I've completed by first novel (a YA kind of sci-fi, but sans spaceships... I guess it's a mystery with science themes. Is that even a genre?!) and am currently sitting in query rejection land (huzzah for self-pity!). But, I'm cheering myself up by reading about others' successes and poring over endless excellent query letters, which is a great help, as I am beginning to think mine is truly awful.
So, long story short, glad to be here, always happy to read the wibblings of others and hoping for a little push in the right direction with the damn query!
