More on queries!

To avoid incurring EPIC FAIL with your query, definitely read this post on Colleen Lindsay’s blog and all the links in it (even though I mentioned some of them before – read them again).

Somehow this makes me glad that I’m not at the stage of query-writing yet, so I have LOTS of time to research and polish my manuscript and then go bleed over it and polish it again. And again. But then again even your bestest and most-polishest manuscript is bound to fail if your query letter plain sucks. Ah, the hard truths of the publishing world. Isn’t it reassuring?

By the way, did I mention how I’d love to work in publishing despite the fact that I’d have to deal with epic query fails and the all-encompassing slushpile? Well, for now let’s just hope that Light will make it past all that 😉

This is why you should NOT submit paper-queries to some agents ;)

…because God’s wrath is fierce 😉 (Swiped from Colleen Lindsay’s blog and the reason of me almost peeing my pants at the office this morning because I had to laugh so hard)
