Apparently...
« on: February 22, 2010, 11:52:52 AM »
I have a super smokin' query letter!! (Thank you to all who helped me clean it up!!). And a decent first 5 (since I send them with most all of my queries).

After sending out 24 query letters (and hearing back from just over half of them), I've just received my 6th request! I'm really floored at the response. Now, please just keep your fingers crossed that at least ONE of these requesters loves it!

I hope you get so many requests and offers that you have to schedule interviews to choose who YOU want, not the other way around!!!
