Querying Again

Comments: 2

I just sent out 10 more E-queries yesterday. One was a status query and I got a nice personal note of rejection about an hour later. The other 9 were to new agents. Then, I got one back within a few minutes of sending it out saying SWEET REVENGE was not what he's looking for. Oh, well. So, who is looking for something like SWEET REVENGE? That's the huge question.

Then, this morning, I got two more rejections.

Wish me luck with the remaining 6 queries, plus a ton of others I sent out earlier that the agents haven't responded to yet.

I'll probably need to do more status querying in a few weeks as many of my old queries have been out for nearly 3 months now.

  1. Google alerts are easy. If you have a gmail account which is free you can sign up and list key words that will trigger an email- Now for a bit of humor...Imagine the kind of google alerts I get with my book title being LOTTERY !
    It's very useful-

  2. Thanks Orion. I guess I need to look into it more.
