Querying Again

I've resumed the query process again. I know, it seems like an exercise in futility, but like they (whoever "they" are) say, "nothing ventured, nothing gained."

Here's hoping this go-round works better. I think my query letter is better than before, and I've revised the novel to the point it's practically a new story.

Wish me luck.

(P.S. Can someone tell me how to turn this italics thing off. I keep selecting the text I want as normal type, and clicking the italics button and even the erase formatting button, but nothing seems to work.)

  1. I wish I could tell you how to turn off the italics... but I can't. But, I know you can tell me how to make my blogspot a much prettier place, just like yours! HELP ME!

  2. Blogger has a set-up page you can go to and get tons of templates. I think you can even design your own, but I'm not sure of that. Click on Customize then Pick New Template. Go try a few on for size. I’m thinking of changing mine one of these days, but I kind of like the green, vegetation looking background.
