QueryTracker Contest!

Oh my gosh!  Something spectacular just happened!

So about two weeks ago, I wrote this post about the QueryTracker Carnival and a few of its contests.  Well, I placed in one!  Wait, what?  I know, that’s what I said!  I won a query critique by Lindsay Davis of Writer’s House.  I just…died.  I nearly died.  You can see the essay here if you’re interested.  I had fun with it.

I have been living in query hell.  Seriously. I really struggle with writing a succinct letter.  That’s why I was so incredibly grateful that Carrie Harris workshopped my query in her blog.  (You can read that here.)  She took my hot mess of a query and gave me some amazing (ly hilarious)  insights.  So yesterday I printed out the bare bones of her suggestions and my revised query, and the Illiterati tore it apart again.  (Special thanks to Mason for his awesome reconstruction!)  So then I had a freshly put together query, strengthened by the talents of others.  And now this.

I am learning so much, and this baby is going to shine by the time we’re all through.  I’m absolutely escatic.  Thanks for your help, everyone!

  1. That is cool, Mercedes. I sincerely wish you the best of luck.

    (And if you’re ever interested, I have some unconventional thoughts about querying I’d like to share with you.)
