Two More Partial Requests and Mia's Fabuloso Competition



Yesterday I got two more partial requests! Here are the updated stats:

Queries: 55
Rejected: 18
Partials: 6 (1 rejected)

So now I know if none of them like it, then it probably wasn't meant to be. Remember, this is the fourth book I'm querying, so I've had my share of rejections on partials in the past. I'm hoping, though, that I've FINALLY broke through.

Secondly, Mia is having a SUPER AWESOME GIVEAWAY. She's giving away a copy of my sci fi novella, Nebula's Music as part of it. Thank you Mia! If you get a chance, go over and enter!

Congrats on all the interest. I think this could be 'The One.' I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I got a partial request yesterday, so now that's one full and one partial. It's so terrifying, isn't it?

Partial requests are always good. And they give your writing ego a little boost, too. Good job.

Don't give up hope on this. Wait for feedback, and see if you need to make some changes. I love this manuscript!

Another two partials, that's awesome. Hope one of them works out.

Oh good luck on those partials! This is the part of the process that is most nerve-wracking from what I hear...but keep your chin up! ^_^

Alexandra Shostak said...

Hooray! 2 more partials! That means your concept and your samples are interesting the agents. Great thing! I hope this is the end of your querying journey (as in, that an agent signs you!)
