This Just In



I have been informed by Matt at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment that my query for Parallel Lives is up for review. So light your torches, sharpen up your pitchforks, and get your red and blue pencils ready. Read it today, tear it up tomorrow. That will give me all weekend to lick my wounds and recover. Except that the Magpie graduates high school this weekend, so I'll be even more of an emotional wreck. Thanks in advance, I'll be back tomorrow with my regularly-scheduled bit of nonsense!

  4. Just read your query over at Matt's blog. I'm interested to see what he has to say about it, especially since I just heard a panel of literary agents discuss query letters a few weeks ago. Best wishes!

  11. I don't feel I can comment on the query for obvious reasons, but it sure is interesting to read how others perceive it. They're picking up on the issues you were concerned about: the order, the genre, the amount of detail. I hope it helps. Good luck. I really want PL published. It's such an amazing story & beautifully written.

  13. Don't cry too much. It really wasn't that bad. His comments were very helpful. I got confused reading some of the others.
