Riding the Query-Go-Round -- one week in

Friday, April 29, 2011

It's now been one week since I sent off my first batch of queries, so I thought I'd give you a bit of an update.

Keep in mind that one week is a ridiculously short time period in publishing, and that my moronic self chose the day before Easter, which was also just prior to Passover, to query.

Having said that... things are going great.

It's difficult to keep time in perspective when it comes to querying, especially when you feel the need to check your email every hour, half-hour, quarter-hour, five minutes... :-P It makes it feel like things are taking longer than they are. I have to keep reminding myself of that.

I refuse to shoot myself in the foot with specifics, so I'll keep this vague. I've got multiple fulls floating around out there, and I've had one partial request as well. And the feedback from those reading... OMG, people if you could see my face...

The feedback I've been getting is flat out amazing. I may actually be able to write the very first non-fiction account of someone learning to fly if things keep going like this. My feet are seriously wanting to leave the ground.

Oh yeah, this requires dancing - and firefly:







Dance with me; I'll protect your identity with my failsafe image guard:

I can imagine your face. I'm so excited for you! I'm sure it's only a matter of hours before you'll have offers. Your story sounds amazing. (I had to go find that query everyone was raving about) :)

Thanks for sharing the info. I love hearing about an author's journey. Can't wait until you post more of your journey.

I love Firefly. Nathan Fillion is delicious. Congratulations on all the requests and feedback! If you sprout wings and fly away, make sure you take your computer with you!

I'm so happy for you! Surely you'll have offers flying around so you won't be lonely in the sky. Good luck! :D
