Query Update

Happy Easter! Hope everyone has started their long weekend off right.

There is very little to update in the land of rejection, rejection, rejection! You don't even want to know how many queries I have fired off in the last few weeks. So far, I have 16 rejections and one request for a partial, which I sent over a week ago and have yet to receive a response on.

When authors say that query is tough, they aren't lying. Constant rejection is rather crippling. I think if I were a boy, I'd prefer a kick in the nuts. However, it is a necessary evil. I like my book and I really think if someone would just take the time to read it they would like it too. Alas, I can't seem to get past the query letter (except in the one instance). Perhaps, it needs some fine tuning. I think I will spend some time on that this weekend.

Until the next update...
