Week’s Links

This week, the Query Shark describes how query letters are like figure skating:  http://queryshark.blogspot.com/

Some query math: http://blog.redsofaliterary.com/2010/03/10/some-agency-math/

A big thanks to Georgia McBride for tweeting this: http://m-stiefvater.livejournal.com/147714.html Where urban fantasy author Maggie Stiefvater blogs about “writing, folklore, and the creative life.” In this link, she gives “Ten Rules for Query Letters.” (you may have to scroll down the page, but it’s there 😉 ).

Trolling sometimes leads to great catches…check out this YA writer’s blog (she has great tips for query writing!): http://shanasilver.livejournal.com/ Shana Silver is a computer animator by day and a YA writer by night.

    Thanks for checking, Deb. I put in the blog’s link instead and that didn’t work either, but when I yahoo’ed Query Shark, it came up. Sorry, gang, not sure why it’s not working. Will try to tinker…:)
