Queries - Behind the Scenes


Dudes and dudettes... I am busy with the end of the term here at school, but I came across this VERY helpful advice on Alan Rinzler’s blog. He goes over two queries and discusses them on a voice recording. Great advice! He talks a lot about platforms. I think I have to puke now. Where are those zombie pics everyone has?

Have a listen!

Update: Guppy turned me into a zombie!

Gee, thanks, and there went my productive evening!! Kidding. Thanks for the post. I'll click over to his site once I finish the revisions for the night and walk Jesse and James. The boyz sometimes take precedence. Thanks again.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels more than a little green when I see them!

Ok, this is fascinating and also a little scary. I can't imagine editors reading our stuff and picking it apart like this.

Scott- My advice is to become a zombie... nothing can touch you then! :-)

Windsong - LOL! I like the baby zombie on your blog!

Lisa and Laura - the very reason that I became a zombie! ;-) I think guppy is on to something!

Lois - you're welcome. :-)

I think the best thing to do is read queries that worked. Kristin Nelson (agent) has some on her blog that are great examples.
