Hodgepodge

I have recently (like, yesterday), revised my query - the letter I plan on sending out to more agents. I’m thinking about posting it on my blog and getting your opinion (and maybe spreading the news to the RWA chapters I belong to, to also check it out). Good idea? Bad? I’d like to know what you think about that.

Not that I blog everyday (I’m lucky to hit twice a week!), but next week I’ll be on vacation. We’re taking what I call a “car cruise”. Hitting cities we’ve never visited before. If I have access to the internet at night (and the odds are pretty much in our favor), I may post more often. That’s if I have any decent pictures or funny stories to share. Heck, I’m with my husband. I’m sure I’ll have at least one funny story to share. I’ll just have to remember to write it down when it happens or else I’ll forget.

Do you own an e-book reader? Do you want to? I’m still in the NO category on those things. Why mess with something that works? I just foresee problems with electronic gadgets in the future. AND the changes in formats (you know it’ll happen). I’ll stick with bound books.

In case I've never thanked you - I thank you for following my blog (or reading, if you’re here and don’t follow). It’s almost like writing a letter to a friend. That’s what I try to do here, anyway.

Stacy,

I stumbled across a query critiquing blog: openquery.blogspot.com. I haven't had time to read a lot of the comments so I don't know how useful it would be for you but you might want to check it out.

If this turns out to be a good tip, you have to leave me a Mooku (see my blog). :-)

Linda

Thanks Linda, but I already follow that blog (and is listed to the right with the other blogs I follow). I've sent my current query there at least three times and I may do it again. I was just looking for a different audience.

You can get some good feedback from the Query Slushpile (as Rick Daley calls it), but I've been lacking at critiquing, so feel a little guilty re-posting!

I'll be sure to check out your blog to see what the heck a Mooku is!

Hi Stacy,

I gave in and got a nook for my birthday. I had been using the B&N eReader on my ipod so my husband decided I should have nook. I never never would have thought I'd take to it but there are a couple of things I really like, particularly that I can download a preview and read before I buy.

I'm still better with a book, but I'm getting used to this.
