Change Of Plans

I got another partial request today! Woot! This is the first partial from the second batch of queries. So far I've sent out 24 queries- I've gotten 3 partial requests, and 9 rejections. The 2 partials I've already sent were rejected :( but now I have another one to get excited about.

Anyhoo, I planned on working on TEMPER all day, but it occurs to me that I haven't done a read through of UNTOUCHED in about a month. I've just been sending queries and 30-pg partials and (what's the plural for synopsis?) that have already been edited to death. So I'm going to do a run through of UNTOUCHED, then head to the local Staples.

See, I've only been e-querying because it's so much easier, saves the trees, etc. But this agent wants a 75-pg printed partial mailed to her. So I figure while I'm there I'll print up some queries and sample pages so I can send off some snail mail queries. Fun stuff.

Enjoy your day! I will spend mine being a busy little bee.

(That was a weird statement.)



  1. Big congrats! I love getting requests. ANd remember, the next step after a partial is a full!

  2. T. Anne- I love requests too! I'm going to be so excited when I get a full request. Man, imagine getting an agent- or better yet, a book deal!

  3. Ooh, that's exciting! Congrats! Get that puppy in the mail!

  4. Congrats! I got a request for a partial today, too. We can keep our fingers crossed for each other. Good luck!

  5. Congratulations Kath (and Groupie).
    Wish the best for the both of ya.

  6. Yay requests! I agree about the dislike of paper things -- email is so much easier, faster, and saves so much paper! While I love seeing my MS printed out and all pretty-like, it makes me cringe internally to actually have to print it. Tis worth it though, I suppose.
