Are You Querying Right Now?

I know I'm not alone on this one, but out of curiosity, how many of you are currently querying?

I love the rush when I send out a query. Each letter holds so much promise. And of course, being a writer, I let each scenario play out in my mind, dreaming up "How I Landed My Agent" and "Eek! The Contract's in the Mail!" posts. It'll be so exciting once I'm to the next stage. I'll have so much to share with you all!

If Karma was as good as a guarantee, I should be a rich princess soon, or at the very least, a published author.

I'm currently querying. And each and every day I'm on the edge of my seat!

Bane of Anubis said...

Yep - I've been on the query carousel w/ one project or another for awhile... good luck!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I'm on the precipice of querying. I thought I was there, but my crits show a need for a bit more revision. Soon...soon.... :-)

Jenna Wallace said...

I'm in the process of querying right now (the tail end, I hope, if my revised full goes well!!!).

I'm right there with you...I've got my status updates prewritten in my head for the moment it happens.

Stephanie Thornton said...

I'm querying too! I've become obsessed with my inbox lately!

Good luck! I hope we get to share our stories soon!

I am not querying yet. I made a big leap into a different project about halfway through Trueborn. I was fed up with all the vampire stuff out there and how saturated the market was. No matter how original I feel my vampire story is, it was going to be hell trying to convince an agent or publishing house to put out ANOTHER vampire story... sooooo, I just switched gears and now I'm very far from querying again. :( SO sad.

GOOOOOOOOD Luck to you!!! You better not forget me when you hit it big time. I want to be there for the next chat room party :P

Shannon, your comment reminded me of the saying, "Soon is good, but good is better." No need to rush the querying process. It'll be just as maddening as it is now for me when you dive in!

Steph Damore said...

I know Alliterative! I check my email way too much. My obsession with Gmail is completely unhealthy.

Steph Damore said...

Bane, are you querying right now? If so, good luck!

Stephanie, any partial requests? Your book sounds soooo cool. I can't wait until we're all published. It's fun to have friends experiencing this journey together.

Steph Damore said...

Void, it's awful how saturated the vamp market has become. It was probably smart to move on to a new project for now. What genre is your new WIP?

Speaking of chat room parties, I think we should have one for my birthday... I'll get to work on that.

Stephanie said...

Querying is very exciting! I haven't done it in almost a year! Been busy editing!! But I did email out a partial request yesterday to the agent that requested it when I met with her this weekend at a writers conference. That is exciting...though it will probably be weeks before I hear anything.

I'm not querying yet, but looking forward to getting to that step in the process. Best of luck to you!

Steph Damore said...

Stephanie--You're so brave completing an agent pitch session. I'm so proud of you. Good luck with your partial.

Steph Damore said...

Thanks Nicole (for the comment and stopping by). I'm heading over to your blog now :)
