Got my first partial request!
« on: July 24, 2009, 09:33:22 AM »
I am newer to QT but received some fabulous feedback on my query. After the comments here I decided to try my luck and send out a few (3 to be exact) query's that didn't need a synopsis quite yet (that is still a WIP). I was planning to send more this week and even more once my synopsis is ready. I got one rejection after 2 days but yesterday received a request for my first 50 pages! I know this could very likely end in another rejection but I am just excited that A.) My query apparently works and B.) someone was interested enough to want to read some of my stuff! Whatever the outcome, this is definitely an experience I am glad to have!
