Submitted

At last - it's only taken a couple of months - I have composed the query letter for 'The Poisoned Apple'. My first submission - to one of the top agencies, of course - should be hitting their desks right about now.

I found Query Shark's blog invaluable. After writing (one moment, I just need my fingers for counting) eight horror novels and one other childrens' novel, all of which are collecting dust and cluttering up my study, I guess I need all the help I can get.

That's a really good site, thanks for the linkage!

And good luck for the query, hope it works out!

Now when you make it big, I can point and say "I used to read her blog!"

Catherine J Gardner said...

Cheers, guys.

JC, 'I used to read her blog!' You mean you're going to abandon me. :( Tut, tut, tut.

Mary said...

Lots of luck, Cate! :)

And this post reminds me that I’ve become something of a submissions slacker. Time to get busy!

J.C. Tabler said...

Abandon is such a strong word! I would phrase it more like "be overrun with babies, stepchildren and animals, and unable to find time for myself"

Catherine J Gardner said...

Mary, get those subs out.

JC- I'm sure you'll find your groove once the twins arrive. It's when they're teenagers and they want to use the computer that you'll need to worry.
