And Your April Fools’ Query Queen Is…

This is the 2nd contest I’ve entered for “Like Yesterday” and the first I’ve won. I might be on the right track with this manuscript – just might be. But this contest wasn’t about winning; it’s about helping to shape queries and the opening words of a manuscript. As all writers who seek agent representation know, if you don’t reel in an agent w/ a query and then snatch them w/in the first page, then chapter 2 or 20 won’t matter. I’ve learned a great deal from this contest, as I’m sure the other participants did as well. I’ve already tweaked my query again b/c of it.

Next up – sealing the story. 🙂
