Hey ladies! I'm curious if any of you have had successful queries, and if so, if you'd be willing to take a look at mine.

I am querying agents for my sci-fi YA novel, and I've had one full request and four or five passes so far. It's post-apocalyptic, so I'm not sure if my query is hurting my chances of landing an agent or if its the genre of my novel turning them away.

If you can, I'd love hearing back from you here or through my author email sarahperlmutterbooks@gmail.com 

Thank you ladies!

It's Eternal Press, a small publisher in Santa Rosa, CA.

Congrats, B. Lynn Goodwin! Who's your publisher?

I'm excited that my YA novel, Talent, will be out before too long. Fifteen and a half year old Sandee Mason wants to find her talent, get her driver's license, and stop living in the shadow of her big brother, Bri, who disappeared while serving in Afghanistan.

Thanks so much for the comment Suzanne - I really appreciate the feedback!

Well done on getting The Time Keeper out there. The blurb makes it sound very interesting to me. Good luck with the sales :-)

This week was an exciting one - I self-published my time travel/YA romance novel, The Time Keeper, as an eBook on Amazon.  Who knew, after months of writing, that the hardest bit would be writing the blurb!  It's surprisingly difficult to find exactly the right thing to say to make readers want to buy your book without giving away too much of the plot!  If you're interested in checking it out, here's the link: The Time Keeper
