Review of Manuscript is Complete—Whew!

Sammy and The San Juan Express Adventures in growing up and exploring the world.
Sammy and The San Juan Express

With the help of my critique partner, Vera Haddan of The Fine Art of Bitching, the full review of Sammy and The San Juan Express is complete. Not such a big project, especially since Vera did most of the line editing. I’m lucky to be in a critique group with an editor.

Today, with the final manuscript ready to send out, I started emailing agent queries. You’d think once the query letter was finished, sending them out would be easy—yet another lesson learned. Each query email is taking about one hour, for research on the agency and agent, related books, and to ensure I’m sending what they are looking for. So far, twelve sent and many more to go. Wish me luck.
