I'm afraid I've been neglecting my blog again! I really have no excuses. Bold me!
Still no good news from querying so it looks like I'll have to re-do my first few chapters in an attempt to get some positive feedback. Last night I stayed up until 1am to fill in a form for Pan Macmillian's Manuscript Monday. Every Monday, between 10am and 4pm AEST, they accept queries for unsolicited manuscripts. As I live in Ireland and the form had to be filled in on their page it meant a late one for me. At least it is sent off now.
There is some good news on the writing front though. I won't be saying anything here until it comes to pass but watch this space.
All I can think of are the queries I have sent out and how many have not replied. Every time an email comes through my heart skips a beat.
I have given myself the deadline of the end of August for Bleeker Avenue. If there has been no feedback by then I will re-access where to go next with it. Maybe a full overhaul is needed.
The big question is... How many rejection letters are too many?
I'm planning on baking a rainbow cake for Beth's birthday. What do you think of my first attempt?
