Query Submissions

Well I’ve submitted eighteen queries. I’m using my phone and having to type the query letter each time. Some agents ask for first 5 pages, 10 pages, first chapter, three chapters and 50 pages. Worked on getting info on flash drive, now I need to go to library. Already got one denial and one agency asked for first ten pages. I’m determined to do this! My stubborn Irish streak will come in handy.
Most agency’s take anywhere from two to six weeks to contact you…if they do at all.
Remaining happy and hopeful!!

Submitting My Query Letter

image

If you are looking for an publishing agent, Google Agent Query. It has a treasure trove of names, info and it’s easy to use.
I emailed seven queries yesterday and I plan to do two or three a day. It just takes peaking the interest in one agent…I hope this letter will do that!!

Dear…………,
I am seeking representation for the series “Poisoned Soul”.

An epic trilogy in which the main character and antagonist, Mason Hudson, is afflicted with Dissociative Identity Disorder, one of his alters being a serial killer, Mason is unaware of the explicit, gruesome murders he has committed, which propels the public and himself into dealing with this harrowing tale.

Mason Hudson AKA Hunter Cook share a body but have a separate conscience. Cook, the shrewd murderer ends the life of a beloved character. He stumps the law, evades capture but eventually, with the dedication of private investigator Benjamin Walker, faces our justice system. This first novel “Within These Walls”, lands Hudson/ Cook in court with a shocking verdict.

                             ~
With established characters and sub plots, Cook goes on to slaughter and mutilate his way into becoming a serial killer. Protagonist Kevin Reinhart brings Mason down in an exhilarating police standoff, which puts Mason behind bars at the close of the second novel “The Evil Within”.

                            ~
Courtroom drama opens ” Without Remorse”, where an insanity verdict is unanimous and Mason is sentenced to four consecutive life terms in a prison for the criminally insane. This final book is mixed with new colorful, crazy characters. With Masons ideation of escape and sessions with Dr. Weston, the story remains amazing and addictive, with a surprise ending.

Something New

I haven’t posted my thoughts in awhile….
Been too busy writing:)

Self publishing is for the fricken birds!
Marketing is a big problem. Either it’s very difficult or I’m sort of dense.
I’ve decided to go back to sending out queries to established agents. I’ve gone that road before and it was no easy thing. But…….
I’m researching a perfect querry letter and I’m using ‘Agent Query’- a great web site.
I really need to crack down and send them out daily!
I have hopes to be invited to submit my work.
‘Within These Walls’…
Finished
‘The Evil Within’…
62,000 words-almost done
‘Without Remorse’….
3rd novel in ‘Poisoned Soul’ series. Will write and publish near the end of 2015

I love the hard work and I am especially enamored with the writing!
I love new and difficult challenges! Keeps my brain alive.
It’s a great thing that I’m so stubborn. It interferes at times but is useful when it comes to working. Well, enough of my thoughts
