Finally! haha. It's been a long time since I sent out any queries on my novel that's been done for a couple of years. I got discouraged I guess.

But yesterday I wrote a new query and started sending it out. Today, I have my first ever request for a partial.

Okay but now I'm really nervous! lol... what if my 49th page is my worst page??!!? I'm not saying it is, I dont know the file is at home but ... gah.

lol - anyway, I wanted to, nay, I had to share.

Well done! I second Mr Anonymous - if the query is working, send a few more! Not too many, though - you don't want to burn through every suitable agent only to find out the partial needs more work :(

Think small-batch queries, TheAntar. You can tweak as needed, and won't use up your precious query opportunities.

But kudos on your partial request. It's a great feeling, isn't it?

Congratulations! I just got asked for my first partial last week (followed by a full and an exclusive partial). I know how excited you must be. I hope this works out for you! :snoopy:

Cgs! It's always a relief to have some proof of query effectiveness. :D

thanks all!

I sent it about 2 hours ago. I couldn't help myself, I got home and edited the first 50 pages again. Like I haven't done that 8 zillion times already.

I also included a bonus synopsis of page 51 to the end. I hope thats 'allright' :D

Anyway it sucks to live with your breath held, alas... I have no choice right now!
