Hello, all you lovely querying authors out there.

  1. I’m so sad that I didn’t hit “send” fast enough! Such a fantastic lineup and I would’ve loved to see what everyone thought of my query. Can’t wait to see how everything goes down :)


  2. I wonder how many queries will be in the drawing; that’s quite a concept. I’m assuming Cupid’s Literary Connection has some sort of weeding-out process so you don’t get deluged?




What do you think? I love hearing from you!
