Re: Hang A Shining Star- contemporary women's fiction

I love the title of your book and want to read more after seeing your query. I am a women's fiction fan and you have a great premise for a book. The improvements between revisions are great, and if you look at it a few more times, it will be ready to send off. Good Luck.

Partial versus Full

Is there a difference if a literary agent requests a full ms instead of a partial right off the bat? Maybe their more interested? I was just curious.

On the Fringe Page One

I found the query feed back helpful, so I thought maybe posting the first page or two would help. I know starting a book with a dream is a literary no no, but I think it works. If I am completely wrong let me know. Thanks I walked up to receive my diploma and my dad held a camcorder to capture every...
