Helloooo Fellow Writers!
« on: September 08, 2010, 09:09:46 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking for some time, but have finally finished The Book and am onto the process of querying. I've only queried for a day now and I'm already sick from stress. Bleh.

Anyhoo, thought I'd come here and see how ya'll do it and get advice.

Good luck to everyone and happy writing!!

Cheerio!
 :)

Hi, ascarci! :welcome:  Welcome to QT!

Isn't querying awful?  :cover:  Shudder.

Feel free to post your query if you'd like a new opinion or ten.  :wink:

 ;D  Karma to you.

Thanks for the greetings! I just might post the query, though I'm sure it won't be pretty... I loathe query writing.

Welcome to the query tracker.

Good luck with querying -- it can be a long, slow and painful process.

Don't let the rejection letters get you down.

Thanks everyone! I've queried on another book before, so I'm prepared for rejections--lots of them.

Today I woke up to 1 parial and a full. This morning I got another full. I'm thrilled, but cautious.

Fingers crossed.

And good luck, all of you!
