Where have all the query writers gone?

I need some help, please. After tomorrow, I have no guests for my GPF features until the 29th.

I don't like that at all. Do you?

I didn't think you would, because you're awesome.

But you know what would make you even more awesome? Volunteering or getting someone to volunteer to write one post about Querying and Submission. It doesn't have to be a how to. I'm just as curious to find out more about your experiences out there in the battle field. What DO you do with your rejection letters?

Or has traditional publishing and indie press publishing gone extinct since I checked the last time?

Please please please!

I'll even throw in a crit or beta read to the volunteers, should they need them...

EDIT: All June Spots have been filled. Thanks so much, everyone! If you wanted to volunteer, though, there are still a lot of open spaces for these months:

July: Inspired
August: Challenged
September: Self Publishing and Marketing
October: Scares
November: Keeping track

Please read here for more information and contact me if you're interested.


  1. Have you asked Matthew? He posts query letter critiques on his blog - I'm sure he could offer some great insight.

  2. Do pop over to my new blog, Misha, I may able to help with your queries. :0)

  3. I wish I could help. My only experience with queries comes from applying for jobs lately. Otherwise I'd say I'd do it.

  4. I'd be happy to help. Drop me a line with all the details and I will get one it.

  5. I'm interesting in posting something. Just let me know what you are looking for. My e-mail is Alyon_Burdette (at) :)

  6. I hope you find someone. I've not written a query in a year or two. I'm probably rusty now. Yep, I'm taking the self-publishing plunge. :)

  7. I also hope all works out. I've never sent a query letter and probably won't. It's all too many rules and stuff for free-spirited me so tossed the keyboard onto the e-side of the house. Kinda like the more personalized challenge.

  8. I'd be willing to guest for any of the later months. Just let me know... :)

  9. Congrats on getting all the june spots filled ;).

  10. Like Alex, I feel Matthew can help you on a query post.

  11. If you'd like, send it over and I'll take a look, Misha. Glad you've filled your June spot. I'd love to post on Scares in October if you need someone then.

  12. I am wishing that i could help you and i may be able to help you with your queries.

  13. Hey Misha, you should ask Sarah Allen at
    Miss Allen recently discussed this very subject quite recently and she could dialogue with you (who is awesome person).
