Into The Trenches

I'm going to send out some queries today. Maybe. Probably. Yes. Well.... YES. Okay.

I'm nervous. But it's more an I-don't-know-what-will-happen-now sort of nervous. I'm pretty sure some agents will like my book, I'm just a little scared that they won't LOVE it enough to represent it.

On the flip side, I'm actually quite excited to send my book out. I probably won't have a heart attack. It was scarier sending the ms to my crit partners, because they were the first people EVER to read it. Now I've taken their feedback and made the book even harder/better/faster/stronger. (Yeah, I'm listening to Daft Punk to get pumped up.)

So. Into the query trenches I go.

Why does it feel like I'm heading into war? I need some face paint and a spear. RAWR.


  1. It's all exciting and scary when you start querying and then the rejections and requests come in and your excitement increases and decreases like a roller coaster...and then you just wait. That is the hardest part and where I'm at. All those fulls just lingering out there...It makes time go really slow.

  2. Congratulations! This a huge, awesome step. One day you'll look back at this day as a published, successful author and laugh at how nervous you were. In the mean time, just eat lots of ice cream and you'll be fine ;)

  3. Good for you Kat! You're going to kick query ass! I just know it! You were built for this kind of war! Grrrrr!!
