Queries
Done. Finally. Just sent out a ton of queries to agents. 66 email queries and 62 paper queries. Everything from a basic query letter to three chapters and a synopsis. The email queries went out first and so far the results have been encouraging. I received 8 requests for partials and 6 for full manuscripts for a totalof 14. Nice! Also received 12 form rejections and 3 of the partials have received rejections.
The paper queries have just gone out so I won't hear anything from them for a while.
Again, I have to thank Miss Snark and the Happy Hooker Crap-O-Meter. I believe the results are directly related ot how strong my hook is for this book. And the HH COM really helped me craft it.
Now, I just hope the actual book doesn't suck.
