I am Querying # 3

Welp… I got my first rejection. Bummer I know, but I do feel like a Querying author again.

And as promised. I broke the proverbial seal and whizzed off another 4 .

current Count-

5 queries

1 rejection

4 live.

The 4 agents have between a 2 week and 2 month response time. My plan is to keep at least 4-5 live at a time.

In the meantime I plan to finish my read of The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square and post a review for it. If you haven’t gotten your copy visit and follow their amazing blog and buy Stephen Black’s debut fantasy novel set in Modern day Belfast.

If you’re already awesome and bought your copy of Skellys Square then I also recommend Martin Strike’s preposterous tales from The Newbury short story teller. If you love British humor this is it. Visit

There are so many talented author bloggers that I follow. I will have no shortage of choices. Off the top of my head, here are a few other books on my keep-busy-so-I-don’t-go-crazy list.

His Name Was Zack by Peter Martuneac

Echo by Kent Wayne

Climbing Over Grit by Marzeeh Laleh Chini

Bloom by Beauty Beyond Bones

I hope I can join this incredible list of published authors soon. ๐Ÿคž ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Cheers, Amy

  1. Thanks for the mention ๐Ÿ˜€ Sorry to hear about the rejection, but I suppose we have to expect that as authors who aren’t named Stephen King! I’ve got 8 live right now, but I probably won’t send any more for a while. A publishing company I’ve had my eye on will be accepting submissions in October, and reading their ‘wants’ list my book seems (to me) like a perfect fit for them.

    1. Of course. No problem. It is a competitive business. I havenโ€™t gone for any publishers directly yet but I do think I will look into it soon. Sounds promising. Whatโ€™s a few months wait huh.
