Interview on Query Tracker


Have you heard of Query Tracker (QT)? It is a powerful database of agents and editors and an invaluable resource for writers. It has an infinite number of statistics, reports, and forum threads to keep you adequately distracted while you’re waiting in agent queue. I’ve been a member for six months and QT was instrumental in helping me find and research my agent. My fellow members were very supportive throughout the querying process and if any of you are reading this, thank you, thank you for giving me the encouragement to keep clicking “send”.

Of course the ultimate goal when joining QT is to get a Success Story and I’m thrilled to say, “Here’s mine!”

It’s official. I have an agent!


Drum roll please…

literary agent Michael Carr of Veritas Literary Agency is my agent and I couldn’t be more thrilled. You can find out all about Michael Carr here and here, and all about Veritas here.

Did you follow those links? Good, so now you understand why Michael is the perfect match for my novel SECRETS OF HOPELIGHT.

Now the real fun begins. Some elbow grease to polish the novel so it will catch the eye of one or more awesome editors and it’s off to submissions we go. In the meantime, let’s take a moment to toast—I’ll wait for you to get your glass—ready? To the end of my agony over query letters, all 61 of them…cheers!
