books

letters from the query wars

# of queries read this week: 204
# of partials/manuscripts requested: 1
genre of partials/manuscripts requested: fantasy

In honor of the holiday....

How queries are like--

--zombies: sometimes they eat your brain

--ghosts: they often aren't laid to rest until unfinished business has been resolved

--witches: they weigh the same as a duck

--vampires: despite popular mythology, holy symbols have no effect

--werewolves: just when you think you're getting to know them, they change into something else

--Frankenstein: they're afraid of fire (and possibly pitchforks)

--bunnies: what do they need such good eyesight for anyway?

--sparklepires: when you meet the right one for you, you'll know

--Halloween candy: sometimes they're a trick; sometimes they're a treat

Anyone have any others?

Happy Halloween!
