Query Rewrite Update
Listening to: Goldfinger, “Too Many Nights”
Well, I rewrote the query, incorporating a bunch of suggestions. In fact, one of the comments in the original critique thread inspired a change in the novel itself. I realized that the “camp” the girls attend is leftover from the original concept, which changed a great deal as I wrote. In the current incarnation, the “camp” is much closer to a summer academy of sorts. I’ll be changing the novel to reflect that, as I changed the query letter.
Amazing what happens when your work–or even a short summary of your work–is seen through others’ eyes, huh?
On request, I’m posting a link to the newest version, up for critique at Absolute Write. Please, feel free to eviscerate me (over there, of course)! I need all the help I can get.
And while I’m being politely torn to shreds over there, I’m going to get some work done here in Real Life, despite this insane heat. If I haven’t melted by tomorrow, I’ll be back to update then.
