Re: OVERBOARD - Revision #1 Posted

Hi - I like the first person POV, even though I know most queries are written in third person. That said, why not try both and see what kind of response you get. Send one version off and then try another (of course to different agents). The first person POV is fresh and exciting and gives the reader...

Re: Query: Invisible

Thank you to both of you for the invaluable advice and suggestions. I find queries the hardest thing in the world to write and it helps so much to have an objective opinion. I agree with all the suggestions. The funny thing is I took the Writer's Digest course on query writing and that's where I was...

Re: Query for Darkness Becomes Her

Thanks Quill - I so appreciate you pushing me to do better. Since I am intimately involved in my story, I cannot see my query through objective eyes so your input is extremely valuable. Off I go, back to the drawing board. :)

Re: Query for Darkness Becomes Her

I completely disagree with the post above - you don't have to pay for anything to become a novelist, or to get your work published. If somebody wants money from you, I'd strongly advise you to tell them where to go. I'm sorry but I should have specified that the first month is free.This workshop is...
