Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

A Query Critique

Okay. I've bobbed and flown high, a kite on a string. I've drifted around in the Horse Latitudes ready to throw my little novel over the side but I can finally say I'm done with revisions and am happy with it just as it is.

It's been a long journey.

And now....


Matt over at the The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment has agreed to take on my letter. I will admit right here I had BIG help with it from Angela over at The Bookshelf Muse, so if it's a bust, blame her...JUST KIDDING! query is up for viewing today and tomorrow. Go ahead (you know you want to) check it out, (follow the rules) then slash it to pieces, make suggestions, and in other ways give me wise council.

I'm ready. (She says with a nervous laugh.)

Breathe in, breathe out.


  1. I'll be there! :o) Matt is gentle, you've got nothing to worry about!

  2. I've never visited either of those blogs before. Do I have to go to the Quintessential one to see your letter? And good luck with it. It does sound a little scary.

  3. Ack! Sorry all. It's not up yet. It will be though, at around 7AM EDT.

  4. Okay. I was able to finish with it early. It's up now.

    And man, Bish! This one is going to be tough. This query is already very good, so I don't know that I'll have any major changes to suggest tomorrow, but I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks so much for sharing it!

  5. I know he is Jessica. (Saw your comment on his blog. How cool that you call the geckos by the same name!)

    Yes Rosalind you must go over to Matt's blog. And The Bookshelf Muse is absolutely the bestest writerly site around. Do check it out.


  6. Oh yay, that's fantastic! It's always good to get another set of eyes. I'll pop over now.

  7. Awesome! Popping over to Matts now. ;-)

  8. And it's fabulous! Nice to meet you Bish!

  9. The critique is up. Finally. After a big crash of Firefox this morning. GRRRR.

  10. I'll go on over, too, but it sounds like you're in good hands. : )

  11. I knew people would love it :)


  12. You are so courageous! I hate having people slash up my stuff, even when I know it's for the best.
