OK, that's my #tenqueries. One request, nine passes.
I'm now getting off Twitter until January. My favorite Christmas Present to myself.
I have now responded to all queries through 8/31, not including partial/full requests. I hope to get through 9/15 before Thanksgiving.
Q10: MG sports mystery. Opens with the main character missing the free shot that would have won her team the championship. This is the MG sports mystery equivalent of opening a mystery novel with a dead woman and two detectives standing over the body. #tenqueries
Q8: Thriller, set inside a prison. Skeptical about originality - hope it doesn't become one guard who teams up with a badass con who is actually a good guy to take out the gang of inmates hell-bent on escaping and going on a murder spree - but will request and find out#tenqueries
Q7: Appealing to my Patriots fandom is always nice - a good way to show you've done some research and are querying me for a reason.
But in doing that research, you should also have learned that I'm beyond clueless when it comes to Picture Books. Pass.#tenqueries
Q1. Horror, already published with small press, but rights can be reverted at any time and "I think there's a real market for it." With very few exceptions, once a book is published, it's extremely tough to get it re-published elsewhere. Pass. #tenqueries
