Oh Query Day! Oooohh Query Daaayy...

First off, I wanna give a special birthday shout out to a child blogger who never fails to add a smile to the blogosphere.  Lenny Lee is turning 11 today!  He’s been through a lot and we’re so happy he’s with us to share his sunny comments, dreams and writing!  

Happy Birthday / Joyeux Anniversaire Lenny!! 

Other news:  It’s query day.  Duh duh duh!!   Last beta feedback has been incorporated and I’ve received the ‘thumbs up’  so I’ve decided to grow a pair #hitsend and test the waters... just to see.  I guess I probably shouldn’t have querried my top choice agents first but what can I say?  I’m a glutton for punishment.   Thanks for sticking with me these last six weeks while I’ve talked about my own Creepy Revision Process and Killing Time Between Revisions…Productively If you missed it and want a recap- we talked about:




And READING BOOKS  Yes- you guessed it!  The last way to kill time between revisions productively is to read!  I got through Dan Brown’s ‘The Last Symbol’- which reminded me that books containing long winded detail, description, and explications still exist in the adult world (I’d almost forgotten while hybernating in my YA cave) and these books are still just as good!  I also read ‘Wicked Lovely’ and ‘Personal Demons’.  Which leaves ‘Wintergirls’ and ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ for the plane ride to the U.S. and back this weekend!  Whoohoo!


Let the query wars begin!  Wish me luck!

**Okay I swear I really am UNPLUGGING now until I get back from my U.S. trip next Wednesday!  I’ll miss you all!!**

Good luck querying! Strap in for the ride. And I just finished The Lost Symbol last night. Great example of a page turner. Lots of historical detail, but I found it all interesting. Except for the last few chapters when the story shold have ended or been incorporated into the story! Have a fun trip to the USA!

Good luck with the querying! I actually link a FABULOUS Querying manifesto today, if you are interested. I loved her 'get real' advice on the matter.

And you're going to the US and back in one weekend? Holy COW! Good luck witht he jet lag! In fact... stay on a France time schedule! What on earth would you just need to be here for a day or two for? (travel safely!)

I read the symbol a few months agao and I agree he should have stopped writing about three quarters of the book, it was genius until then
