Back in the Query Saddle

I am, once more, unagented. Well, mostly.

FinePrint will continue to represent ASSASSIN'S NIGHTMARE for the duration of its submission process to editors. However, my new agent there just didn't have the same love for my writing that Colleen Lindsay had. I can't really blame her. She doesn't handle science fiction, and she didn't select me for herself. Therefore, we've decided to part ways.

And so, I find myself back at square one. Frustrating, but not insurmountable. Depressing, but not as horribly so as I thought it would be.

I am extremely grateful that I have two new finished manuscripts ready to query. I am glad I didn't sit back and wait to see what ASSASSIN'S NIGHTMARE would do before going ahead and writing more books. Now, I'm ready to hit the query trail again.

Hopefully it won't be long before I find an agent who loves my work and will show the same enthusiasm Colleen did.

I think it'll definitely help you get read having had an agent before, and for what it's worth, I think you're making a good decision to query again. Yeah, it does kind of suck, but it'll be so much better having an agent who loves your work. Good luck! And keep us informed.

Also, good luck with Assassin's Nightmare!

oh man, I don't come to group for a few weeks and you have news like this?

I'll be coming back, it may just not be until December.

Aw, crudsticks, Lisa. But you have a great attitude, and great skills. I know you'll find someone who gets your work - and knows how to sell it!
