Re: Urban Fantasy PULSE

Thanks everyone! And Ghost- that's what I thought when I read yours- ohh! We could start our own subgenre!
This is humbling in the extreme (in a good way) and I appreciate the time taken to help me know what I need to focus on. I'll work on this and repost when I've addressed these comments. -Kelly

Re: Urban Fantasy PULSE

Thanks, taylormillgirl. Hubby agreed that it was a bit vague (You are conspiring for me! yeah!) I have reworked. I get what you're saying about the whole YA thing, but the book is not YA. It has adult characters, so if NEW ADULT ever takes off, that's the category. I've had some people like that se...

Re: Query-- Scatter (Lit. Fic)

[quote="MaryAnn"]You need to date this somehow. If this is the present, it will be hard to sell that they will be "crucified" once found out. Then on the other hand, it is high school. But in 2010?? Ummm, it's Kentucky. If it's anything like where I live (SC), their relationship would not get approv...

Re: Middle Grade Query

Dear Ms. Agentpants: Most people would say that Brock Rockster is a prodigy. They’d say that his skills as a celebrated private investigator to the stars and world champion mustache grower ( lol )set him apart as a ten-year-old (what, he has a mustache??? ) worthy of astonishment, coddling, and admi...

Re: TO STAND BEFORE A BROKEN MIRROR oh so very rough of a draft

No problem Serzen. I agreed with everything that the first replier said, so didn't feel I had too much to add. I'll be posting my query in the next few days, and would love it if you ripped mine up (but only if it needs it lol). Thanks- Kelly

Re: TO STAND BEFORE A BROKEN MIRROR oh so very rough of a draft

Hi Serzen, I was a bit off-put by the vagueness, which I realized after reading to the bottom is intentional. And you can't start with the classic 'Character X' has lost his grip on reality, etc. because you give the character no name. My first thought was that you were insulting the agent, telling ...

Mail-order Agent

Once you know that a particular agent represents your genre, what 's next? I am more comfortable with the idea of a female agent. They don't have a male/female sort button on AgentQuery, but I wish they did. Flipping through pages of names and agencies is remarkably similar to how I feel about choos...
