Yesterday was my queryversary…one month since I sent my first queries. I’ve sent more since then, but I’ve had enough rejections already to fall off my initial I’m-subbing! high.

On her blog today Kristin Nelson gave a brief list of what children’s editors are looking for right now. This was the very first thing she listed:

“Looking for contemporary stories with a paranormal element. Contemporary main story with just a touch of paranormal.”

  1. LOL! She rejected me in no time and my query states, “In a contemporary setting…blah, blah, paranormal…blah…blah.”

    I never ever read agents lists anymore. I also don’t read about how so and so got their agent after ten queries! Blech. Don’t need the added stress of trying to keep up.
