I've been stalking through, after finding this wonderful place. I was trying to Google to find an agent's web site (when the link didn't work on Writer's Market) and found so many good pieces of advice here! So thank you, already. I have loved books my whole life and started more than I can count. I have lots of partially written novels/stories, but last month finally finished a novel I started back in 2008. It's a YA vamp novel. I've used Writer's Market to send out queries and am amazed at how different I feel every day...going from being thrilled to worrying it isn't as great as I think it is. It's great to find a community though. I'm sure I'll learn much more as I go along.
