Another Query Goes Out

Have I mentioned before that I love it when literary agencies approve of email queries? In the day of GREEN, it's the only way to go as far as I'm concerned.

I heard some great news recently about a newly launched Literary Studio seeking new clients for children / YA material. A while back, I'd written an adorable picture book for a contest I entered in July. Needless to say, it didn't win, but now I can send it on to agents & publishers.

I wrote my query letter yesterday, rewrote it several times, read it aloud, showed it to my critique partner, read it to my newest canine baby (she smiled!) and stared at it for a full ten minutes before I pasted it into the body of an email. I made sure I spelled the agent's name correctly, again, kissed it goodbye and hit "send".

Phew! Another one down.

And, congrats to my writing critique partner...she sent one off at the same moment! Best of luck, Nisha! And, thanks for holding my hand.
