Query

So, I’ve done it.  I’ve finally sent out a query to an agent about my novella.

I have mixed emotions about this.  While I am trying not to get my hopes up, I find that the damage has already been done.  They are up, no stopping it now.  I also find myself pessimistic, “what ifs” hanging around my head.  What if it’s not good enough?  What if it’s not long enough?

What if they like it?

I’m trying to hope for the latter while realizing the former.  Sure, it’s just one query to one person.  But it’s a start.

Now, off to write something else to take my mind off waiting for an answer!

  1. Congrats! I hope that you get a very positive response. Remember going after your dream requires a lot of time, patience and determination. If you stay believing in yourself others will follow suit. I wish you well!

    I’ll appreciate it if you checked out my blog http://janachantel1.wordpress.com/ it’s about me trying to become a successful published author.

  2. I sent out ONE query and he asked for a sample. Then for the whole thing. Then he told me that if I had made my main character a vampire or something, he might be able to sell it lol.

    I’m not even mad about it, just laughing.

    Rejections are just one person’s opinion about whether or not the book will sell. Remind me of that when my rejections pile up, k? 🙂
