Query Session Follow Up & Author Visit

Before we do a follow-up, a quick note that Sci-Fi author Robert J. Sawyer will be in Edmonton to celebrate the release of his 21st novel, Red Planet Blues. You can find him on Tuesday, April 2, at 7:00 p.m. at Audreys Books, 10702 Jasper Avenue.

Thanks to all the folks who braved the snowy conditions and came out to the session on querying agents & editors.

For those who couldn’t make it, here are the top three things to know:

1) DO YOUR RESEARCH. Make sure you’re sending your manuscript to the appropriate agent/editor (and make sure you’ve done your check to ensure the person is legitimate).

2) Remember that your query letter is your resume on a page. Be professional and to the point.

3) Start on a new project as you’re querying–it’ll help alleviate your anxiety as you wait.
