Pictures of my Trip to New Mexico

So I heard back from agent #6 and the response was no. Oh well. Cherie , my awesome CP not only told me of another agency to send my query to, she told the head agent at the agency about me at the conference she went to. How wonderful is that? Thank you, again Cherie. If this works out I'm eternally in your debt. So I'm waiting on them before I start looking at other options.

Here's some pictures of my trip:


Our Hotel in Santa Fe


View from inside the Theater for the Santa Fe Opera


A church in the downtown of Santa Fe where Igor Stravinsky conducted an Opera


Chaco National Park, where I bought my Native American flute!


Petroglyphs (Carvings on the wall) dating back to 800AD in Chaco


My new friend, the horny toad

I'll post a video of me playing the Native American flute once I get good at it! In the mean time, I'll have a video of my recent concert with my teacher up in the next few days.

Thanks for looking at my pictures! I'll keep everyone updated on this new agency. If you want the link, just send me an email.

The pictures are awesome!

I'm happy there's another agent out there. But you should go to Jane Friedman's blog. I think about two weeks ago, there are post from an author who, in the comment section, said don't just send to the agents in your genre. Many are looking for something unique. I don't want you to give up on this one!

Chaco looks beautiful, so does the church. And I like your new friend.

Don't you just love Santa Fe? It's one of my favorite places. Great pictures. Looks like you had a fun time.

Eeep! Kudos to you for touching the toad. lol.

Good luck with the new agency. It does take time to find the right fit, but it will be worth it. Fingers crossed!

Beth Caudill said...

Love that church. I have to say I love pictures of old churches.

Good luck with your agent search.

Cherie Reich said...

Great pictures! I particularly like the one of the toad and the petroglyphs.

And, I hope something good comes out of the agent search.

Sorry about the no from #6. And good luck with the new agency! That was really nice of Cherie!

The pics are beautiful. I loved Santa Fe when I went there. Lots of neat things to look at. Love the toad. Did you smuggle him home on the plane?

The Words Crafter said...

Kudos to your friend! And, I agree with Theresa, look everywhere. The photos are stunning and it looks as if you had a good time. Looking forward to the videos!

Those are some nice pics - they remind me of AZ.
Even though agent #6 said no, one of these days your efforts will pay off. Keep at it!

Ann Best said...

Good luck on the new agency!

These photos bring back memories of my New Mexico trip with my first husband many years ago. I love the Western United States. It's dry out there, but there's a lot of incredible scenery.

Thanks for posting these, and for coming into my blog.

I'm still waiting for you to get on this blog and let us know you found your agent. It's coming, I can feel it!

Faith said...

Great pics! Esp. the toad... haha.

I'm crossing my fingers for you with this new agency :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Love the photos! Can't wait to see the flute video.

I just realized your link isn't updating itself on my blog. I'd thought you were on hiatus... I'll have to figure out what went wrong with the link.

Carol Kilgore said...

I miss that deep blue New Mexico sky. I'm glad you had fun.

Carole Anne Carr said...

So very envious of all those marvellous sights and experiences!

Elizabeth Poole said...

I LOVE those pictures! They come at a good time for me, since I am working on a western desert setting.

And I am crossing my fingers for you with this new agent.

Cher Green said...

Love the pictures. Especially the one of your new friend.

Good luck with the new agent. Hope it works out.

Lola Sharp said...

The pictures are beautiful...even the horny toad. :)

Your CP, Cherie, sounds like a real friend and that she believes in your book. :) That's worth celebrating.

Good luck on your agent search.

Love,
Lola

I've passed through New Mexico a few times but never really got to see it...

Great pictures!

Amanda Sablan said...

And best of luck with the new agency! You're farther along than some of us, that's for sure. :]

Good luck with the new agency! In Norwegian we have a saying "Den som venter på noe godt, venter ikke forgjeves" ("The one waiting for something good, isn't waiting in wain"). It might not be a universal truth, but at least it can be a motivation to keep trying :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Great pictures. Love the second one. :D

I'm definitely dreading entering queryland again. Not much longer and I'll be feeling your pain. Don't give up!

Sandra Cox said...

Awesome pics, especially the horny toad.
