Well, today I sent out my newly reworked and revised query letter and first pages of my manuscript to four literary agents. I think the help I received in revising the opening has made the story better. One of the agents seemed to be asking for exactly what I had written and even cited the author whose work corresponds most closely to what I try to achieve. It took her all of 107 minutes to send a form no thank you!
Huh, she shrugs, maybe she’s the one who should revise the wording of her wish list.
On a much more positive note, a few minutes later, I received a mail to say that I have been nominated for a Bloggers’ Bash Award!!! What a lovely surprise! So a big thank you to whoever put my name forward—maybe I should stick with blogging. The people are more appreciative 🙂
