I can’t believe I finally got here.
I’ve started querying agents concerning my YA novel, Another War Year. After working on this story in various forms for years, it finally feels complete.
And it all suddenly feels so much more real.
I’m thankful that during my time at undergrad as a creative writing major I had the opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of querying. I’ve also loved taking part in Twitter and web events like #PitMad and, today, #Pg70Pit. These events give agents and editors a chance to check out stories they might be interested in a new and exciting way.
You can learn about #PitMad on Brenda Drake’s site here.
And check out #Pg70Pit on Lara Willard’s site here.
I hope some of you other writers will take advantage of events like this! I’ve been having a lot of fun so far and I’ve had a few agents reach out for samples.
Now here’s hoping these agents like 90s nostalgia, movie trivia, and super conflicted protagonists!
