If you haven't already heard about Gearing up to get an Agent you've missed a whole week of a seriously amazing blog hop!
First, was the meet and greet where I got to catch up with a bunch of new bloggers who are all typing their butts off with the hope to get something on a shelf one day.
Then there was the critique and BETA sign up where I may have a lovely critique partner should we like each other's work. Her fantastic blog can be found here.
Next week is the official pitch contest and to get us ready, today was the submissions for the Great Pitch Polish.
If you haven't joined this hop yet - it's not too late. Check it out here.
Deana opened her email to 100 hopefuls that offered their queries up for slaughter. Despite the opening time being 1am here, I was one of the lucky people that, come Monday, will hopefully get some of you awesome people to help out with my query.
First, my query is far from perfect. In fact, I've only been over it a couple of times, and second, it doesn't follow the traditional format for a query.
I've been writing with the intent to publish for five years now and while I realise that it's not that long really, I feel like I've been through this query thing a thousand times over. It's exhausting. I'm not going to lie when I say I can't wait for some other people to have a go at giving my query direction.
In the meantime, if any of you guys have your queries up early, post a link in my comments below. I've gotten around to a few already, but I'd really like to help out my followers first, and then the other cool GUTGAA members after that. Plus I have the aim to try and get through all of the other 99 entries.
It's going to be a busy week, but thank you in advance to anyone who helps out with my query (not that you'll know which one it is unless you do some digging :P).
I'm also thinking about making a 'cheerleader' section on my sidebar. For all those queries that really suck me in, the ones I really want published. I'm all about supporting writers so I thought that might be a nice way to give a little praise BUT I just don't know. Anyone else tried something like that?
