"A New Wrinkle" in the Game of Queries

I missed this original posting on Janet Reid's blog - and maybe you did too...

http://jetreidliterary.blogspot.com/2012/07/a-new-wrinkle-in-query-game-rules-of.html

She also did a post listing FAQs here:

Basically, she says if you send your query between 7pm and 8pm on Saturday night (New York time) she will send you a personal response with her thoughts. Don't forget to put "Chum Bucket" in your subject line... so be prepared if her response sounds a little like her Query Shark alter-ego...

She also says this offer is good through the end of August, which means there are 3 more Saturdays this offer will be valid.

You have to have a finished manuscript, ready to go out the door if she requests it.

Are you ready? Polish that query. You have 3 days to hit the next Saturday time slot.

Go.

Go ahead - leave a comment! You know you want to! But don't be Anonymous - that'll just get you deleted. And who wants that?
