My first post! Wow. I'm going to try to keep to regular postings, but I may get caught up in life. You know how that goes.
Right now, I'm busy getting submissions, synopses, and query letters ready to submit. I attended the Rose City Writer's Conference in Vancouver, WA and pitched Blue Mountain Magick to the editors and agents there. I got requests for partials from each of them, so now the job is to get everything spotless and send it off.
On that note, kudos to Kim and the members of Rose City RWA. Their conference was great. I met some nice folks and learned a lot, and the agents and editors who attended were so gracious. They were completely accessible, and they took the time to offer their expertise, critiques, and suggestions. I feel much more confident after being able to talk to them. Thanks, guys!
Meanwhile, my manuscript pages are ready, and the synopsis just needs to be cut down by a few lines, but even with a request, I find writing the query letter the most daunting challenge. I'm confident in my writing, but if the query letter doesn't catch their attention, the agents or editors won't even bother with the text. And form rejections hurt. Ouch! But no negative thinking. I'll send the submissions out with lots of positive vibes.
Only 5 Weeks until the RWA National Conference in NY. The excitement builds...
I hope you'll comment. I'd love to hear from you.
I write fantasy and paranormal romance. I love having the ability to create new worlds and new histories. My first book LARAMIE MOON will be coming out soon, so stay tuned.
