Emmie’s Blog And Vlog: Surviving The Query Trenches I

SO! My latest full frontal assault on the query trenches made me want to do a thing. This is that thing. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be trying to help fledgling writers grow their feathers to the point where they don’t fall into the lightning sand traps of the Query Trenches and get eaten by ROUSes.

Wait.

That’s the Fire Swamp.

Pretty much the same thing.

Anyway! I’m not saying I have the chops to impart ALL THE WISDOM, but as a three time vet of the query trenches, I at least have a lot of experience with the slushy slushy slushpile, and I’d like to help YOU not get lost in it. Ideally to come out of the other side with an agent, and not just Prince Humperdinck.

In Conversation with… Emmie Mears! | Graham's Crackers

[…] You’re doing your own series on the query trenches so I don’t want to step on that, but can you talk a little about how you secured representation with Sara Megibow, and any advice you’d offer to those champing at the bit to be able to publish their much-dreamed about “I FINALLY HAVE AN AGENT!” blog post – even if it’s a hard reality check? […]
