As usual, I've neglected my blog. With the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and kids getting sick, life's kept me busy. Also, I have Blood Pool coming out Feb. 9, '09 and I am querying my heart out on two other books.
Querying is like sending a resume out when you're trying to get an agent. You tell them about your book, writing experience and pray they'll be interested to ask to see more. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't even answer.
I came so close to getting an agent...and I'm still holding out hope. We talked...which is a 'big' thing, but I never received the ms back to make the changes that were requested.
I've written a new book since the above mentioned close call. It's a cross between urban fantasy and paranormal romance, called Angel's Fury. I'm really happy with it. I just hope an agent will love it as much as I do.
Stay warm.

How did you get published without an agent? Do you self-publish? Curious because I have a nonfiction book underway and a draft for a novel in the formative stages.

Good luck

Congrats on the upcoming release, and keep your chin up! The right agent will come along :-)
