Hosted by Charity Bradford and the other wonderful writers behind Unicorn Bell, (motto: "To support the writing community by giving constructive tips and criticism through submissions,") I'm delighted to help promote this upcoming query-palooza because:
A. QueryCon is a fabulous idea - and I had so much fun participating last year.
B. QueryCon 2012 helped me "lose" one hundred words on my query (It's like Weightwatchers for a query letter - dare I nickname it Wordwatchers :)
C. QueryCon helped one of our blogging friends find a home for her book... see below :)
Direct from Unicorn Bell, here is the latest:
If one of your goals in life is to get published, we want to help all we can.
Do you remember our awesome query extravaganza from last year? You know, that three week event where we had classes on drafting and polishing the perfect query followed by a workshop week where you got to do just that? And the culmination of all that learning and hard work was a week of final queries being judged by our amazing guest judges.
You know that thing that helped match up Tara Tyler and Pop Travel with a publishing contract?
It's coming again this fall.
So finish up those edits and get ready.
More information to come, but here are a few quick reminders:
- Everyone is invited to participate in the classes and workshop
- Only finished and revised novels qualify for 3rd week final exam by our guest judges (to be announced soon as well)
How awesome sauce is that!
(I have to say I'm as excited as Alex when he gets a new shipment of Comment Borgs to help with his increased load :)
QueryCon 2013 is going to rock, and I hope you can check it out - and join the fun :)
