What a great three weeks! We hope it helped you understand the importance of the query and helped you move in the right direction with your query. All of us at UB enjoyed the chance to pay it forward and help all of our lovely followers. So much in fact that we've discussed making this a yearly thing titled QueryCon.
Monday we will return to our normal posting schedule and various calls for submissions. Stick around and lets continue perfecting our novels so we can reach our publishing goals.
Our judges have another week to look over the queries and let me know if they want to request pages, so don't give up hope. One judge also issued an open invite to submit to her directly to all who participated (info below).
Here are the queries that have already garnished requests:
#2 Who Is Audrey Wickersham?
#3 Joshua's Tree
#5 Staying Dead
#7 Waiting for Someday
#11 Let My Life Be Proof
#12 Running Down the Dragon
Nancy Bell of MuseIt Up Publishing invites anyone who wishes to query her after September 1st. MuseIt Up has been closed to submissions and therefore might get bombarded this weekend. Mention the UB contest in the personalized section of why you chose to query Nancy. You can find the complete submission guidelines HERE. That page is very detailed as to what they will and will not accept. Good luck!
But don’t go away just yet. To the sixteen who submitted their queries:
Send your mailing address to beccoff(at)nwmo(dot)net and receive an extremely cool magnet with our logo. Use it to pin the kid’s grade school picture and meeting reminders to the fridge.
Or a copy of your book deal.
Sorry, North America only.
