Re: How do you know your writing is good enough?

I can't answer your question because I frequently wonder the same thing. Like the other day, when I was re-reading an Amy Tan book and thought, "Why do I bother? I am a universe of suck compared to this woman?" But then again, I'm sure we've all had that sparkly moment at B&N or something when you p...

Re: 1st round of rejections

Thanks cska! This is a great forum and the feedback has been funny, direct, and helpful. I'm wishing everyone a booming fistful of Agent Dust (mythical substance guaranteed to secure primo representation.) To answer your question, it is kind of a love story..love of the important things like men, ta...

Re: 1st round of rejections

Thanks everyone for the great feedback. Back to the drawing board! Or the tarot deck, as the case may be :) Do y'all think something like this would make for a stronger hook: It’s too bad Lucy didn’t learn to read fortunes sooner.

Re: Query Critique: YA Urban Fantasy

Sounds like a good story...agree with previous poster that "morph" sounds better than "stretch" but the query is easy to understand overall.

1st round of rejections

Just got back first two rejections, eagerly anticipating (ha!) more. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Dear SuperAgent, High school senior Lucy Auburn never thought life would take her from mixing paint at the local hardware store to reading tarot cards for celebrity clients. Then again, she also did...
