Today I jumped in with both feet and sent out six queries regarding my young adult novel. After the manuscript made it to the top 25 in the NAESP book of year contest I pinned my hopes on winning that bad boy!
Then I felt a little crushed when it didn't get any further.
Today, I decided that top 25 is pretty damn good and I'm not going to be afraid to continue to pursue this. Today, I sent a query letter to six different literary agents in hopes that one of them might want to see more of the book.
I will keep you posted on the process. I am going to try to send out some feelers once a week until I start getting some feedback.
Here's hoping someone picks up the book before my 40th birthday at the end of July!
The dream is not dead.
