Dear Evil Editor:
I wanted to thank you once again for having a go at my query (Soul Haven, I disremember which number it was ).
Also, I'm pleased to report that Soul Haven has just been accepted for publication through a reputable e-book publisher (Wild Child Publishing) who is moving into print books this fall and intends to include my novel among its first print offerings.
So -- many thanks to you and the rest of the Minions for the assistance, which came not only in your critique of my query, but also in general encouragement (do not think I can't see through that gold exterior to your heart of evil... er, scratch that; reverse it).
S. W. Vaughn, a.k.a. Sonja Baines, a.k.a. -- screw all, I just don't know any more. Call me Ishmael.
Evil Editor is pleased if an author merely gets a manuscript request after coming here. Let us know when the book is available.
This gives me hope! Congratulations on your achievement!
I think it would be great if Ms. Vaugn/Baines/Screw-it/Ishmael would provide us with the final version of the query letter that she ended up sending out. I think it would give people a good idea of how to deal with changes and comments that are made to our queries.
How embiggening for you. :)
Great news! As promised, I will buy two copies of your e-book (and give one to a friend).
Writers supporting writers by encouraging publishers to sign new writers!
Congrats, ones again.
All praise the wonderous EE!!!!!!!
EE and minions,
Add me to your success list--at least with EE and the minions' help, my query garnered a request for a partial.
I'm remaining anonymous until I have great news, where I can send you to the deal lunch and you can read about the sale by an agent of my mss to a publisher. (Knock on wood).
anon 6:11: Yay! And good luck.
Congratulations! Keep us up to date so we can buy it.
Thanks all! I'm excited. Really appreciated all of the comments and insights on my query letter!
Hawkowl, thank you for the new word! :-)
Congrats, anon. #2, and good luck with your partial!
You guys don't watch the Simpsons? "Embiggen" is a perfectly promulent word. Just like "disremember." LOL
Congratulations! And guess what - I wrote a Guess the Plot for Soul Haven (the one about the amulet).
Super! Congratulations, Ishmael!
Well, I'm one step closer to your success, at least. I checked my email at lunch and received a request for two chapters. And yes, EE, I changed the title.
Yay for Ishmael! Yay for everyone!
Woo, hoo! Congrats. Please, please share the query that landed you a deal!
Wow, chumptlet, congrats! What's this make, 3 in one post? Cool...
All praise EE, the miracle dude, and all that...
Now to celebrate fellow minions success... Banan punch? Tried that, I think its spoiled. Banana tea? Nah, not a celebration drink. I know, Banana tree bark liquor, with a hint of hazelnut(the drink's not alchoholic, but I slaughtered the hazelnut with me bare hands).
Yay, fellow minions! And thanks for giving the rest of us a reason to rejoice, and hope.
(dances around, with a bottle of... stuff)
