Hello to everyone on AQ Connect! I'm new to this entire process and, like many of the members on this site, overwhelmed, relieved and apprehensive about using this site, as well as offering any advice. For the time being, I will be asking for help. Hopefully, with some good luck and good advice, I will be able to offer some solid how to's in the very near future. I wish I had found this site sooner. It would have saved me tons of time.

Background: I have a complete manuscript (speculative fiction). I am sending out queries, but so far only a request for a partial. It did not end well. I live in Australia outside Brisbane, but was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. I have two little boys and work with my husband publishing a travel magazine. If there are any ex-pats living in Australia, please send me an email. I miss you Yanks!

Thanks so much!!!

  • Publishing Experience:I've had some poetry published in various poetry books, newspapers, and some online things-I don't remember the specifics though. No novel published, yet. Oh yeah-I have had some articles published in various newspapers as well, but-like the poetry- it's been a while...
