Queries and a contest

Queries are a necessary evil if you want to get published.

And, quite honestly, they scare the crap out of me. 

A query is basically your shot to show an agent how awesomesauce your book is, to get them interested enough to want to represent you.

EEEK.

 The thought of writing my query makes me quiver in my socks.  Fortunately, I have a chance to get professional help!  You can, too!  (And just to be clear, I'm talking professional query help.  Although, I might need other sorts by the time I get my query written...)

Go to Fiction Groupie and comment on today's post and Friday's, fill out a short form, and you'll be entered for a chance to win one of SEVEN query critiques offered by Anita Mumm, Roni Loren, and Miranda Kinneally!  Trust me, if you ever plan on querying a book to agents, a professional critique=invaluable.

And I'll send good winning vibes your way if you will for me!  Promise!

Query rhymes with scary. Eek! Is right! Good luck. It'd be so cool if you won. Are you writing a query just in case?

Yeah, I should probably get on that...

Queries are super hard to write. I have a feeling though that you'll find an agent who appreciates your work. The quality of your writing shows through even on the short snippets I see here on this blog. I'm happy I found this!
