Okay, rejected from Brain, Child. Soooo bummed. I even had a coach help me revise.

Trying to look on the bright side. I wish I could go to that conference. Do they have anything online?

Thanks Melinda!!

I'm actually on the other side of the U.S.Those books are ones I don't have. The one I DO have is: Your Novel Proposal--which is a great book, but I wanted more in depth the presentation of the query and synopsis. I'll definately look at those 2 book suggestions you made! Maybe if there is a writer's conference sometime on the West coast--let me know and we can go together ;)

Hi Camryn,
I'll get back to you on the websites, but I can recommend a couple books you should get if you don't have them already .... both by Sally Stuart. The 2009 Christian Writer's Market and the So You Want to Get Published. The second book has a whole chapter on writing queries. I've used their format successfully a number of times! ;0)
You also have to go to a writer's conference! I've been to the Florida Christian Writer's Conference the last two years. It's in Leesburg, FL, near Orlando. It's expensive, but worth every penny. Great seminars and lots of editors, agents and publishers in attendance. Where do you live, Camryn? It would be great it you could go. It's one of the biggest Christian writing conferences in the country. You're head explodes from all the great info you learn... plus all the contacts you make with publishers, etc. Hope this is helpful! ;0)

Hey ladies!

Does anyone know a fantastic website where one can view "idea's" on how a query letter should look? I am also interested in how the synopsis should be presented too. What type of font--10 point, 11 point....Anyway, I'm just trying to get an idea of what agents are looking for. Thanks!

Lori, still waiting on Brain Child . . . You? What's new?

Just trying to query, query, query.

Hi all,
I have just posted the next installment of my novel writing series on my blog. It is on "Characters in the Novel - Making them Real". Come visit me at Write Moms if you are writing a novel, or considering writing a novel. Be sure to read my other installments too.

Hi ladies! I've seen a comment like this already, but I thought I'd submit it anyway just in case someone has new or additional feedback.

I'm interested in possibly submitting a few blog entries to a mom magazine to see where it goes. Has anyone ever done this? Do you currently have connections or knowledge related to this subject? If so, let me know! I've been told I should try to publish some things. Just looking into the idea. Let me know if you have any information! Thanks! -Emily

Lori - You go, girl! Find your selling voice, and pitch something irresistible! You can do it. :)

Me, too - I'm procrastinating today. No ideas at the moment.

Congrats on recent article - sounds interesting! What kind of photography does she do? Is it online? Send a link!

What else do you write?

Melissa, I know exactly what you mean about re-writing an article so many times you end up hating it!

My latest published article came out in the April issue of Art Voices Magazine, a regional arts publication based in New Orleans that just went national a few months ago. It was a profile of a photographer who is also a friend of mine. I get lots of inspiration & story ideas from people I know. They often become the subjects in my articles!
