I received my MFA recently and finished Volume I of my novel, and the next steps allude me and it is a bit scary. Any advice?
NEw writer scared of the process.

Volume 1? How big a volume? Is there a complete story in this volume or are you trying to sell a series with an incomplete story? I would be pretty intimidated if my "Volume 1" had volume but I hadn't finished the story yet.
I don't mean that sound antagonistic. There's a great deal here. There's a community of support. Browse the forums. Learn how to write a hook and write one. Develop a query. I discovered that trying to write a query made me rewrite my novel and it became a better story.

I second what Nessa said.
I recommend you dig around through this site. You'll find countless conversations like this one about how daunting the process can be, but you'll also find innumerable examples of writers helping writers through the process.
