Me and my little ol' literary zombie book are now represented by awesome agent Weronika Janczuk.

I'm absolutely psyched.

Some stats:

Genre: Literary Horror/Thriller (Zombies!)
Started querying: December 2010
Queries: 48
Rejection/No Response: 42
Full/Partial Requests: 6

Weronika gave me a revise & resubmit request in late February, so I stopped querying while working on it. She offered amazingly insightful, detailed feedback even before I was a client, and it improved the manuscript immensely. Went way beyond the call.

Work hard. Don't give up. It can happen.

Now a bit of line-editing, and then we play the submit and wait game. :D

Will do. :P

If you haven't read it already, check out THE REAPERS ARE THE ANGELS by Alden Bell. Southern Gothic literary zombies. So good.

The first big step! No, wait, finishing a publishable MS is the first big step. Or is it?

Never mind. This is one of the BIG steps. Good luck with the last edits and subbing!
