Topic: Is anyone doing any querying?
I've been beating myself to death finishing a couple of projects and of course my time in TNBW has suffered. I know that querying agents or publishers very likely isn't on the top of the list for many of us who self-publish (and thereby also must self market and promote) However, I do know that some of us have successfully attracted both agents and publishers.
Personally I've been scared to death to try again even after attending that workshop. What I've learned since then is that the model I learned - from agents who actually work to acquire manuscripts and sell to publishers - is only the tip of the iceberg. Apparently different agents look for different styles. I wish there was a way to see examples of these winning letters from agents we are interested in. I write for a niche audience, which makes it even harder, but then most genres are fairly focused on a topic or age group.
Sooooo, any success stories - or flops to share?
