I love Romance Divas
TGIFF! Yep thank goodness it's finally
Friday. The weekend has begun as well
as the Romance Divas
We All Win Query
contest judging and I'm so hyped.
This contest is just as awesome as
all the others RD has hosted. I've
gotten several judges comments on my
entry and each and every one has been
so helpful in showing me how I can
improve my query letter.
I know most people hate query letters
almost as much as synopsis writing, but
for me I find a query letter interesting.
I searched the internet over for every article
I could find on them before beginning my own
for this contest and I can tell ya there is
some very contradicting information out there.
It's like a vast sea of confusion. So what did I
do? Why I took what I thought were the best
examples and mixed it all up to create what I
hope turned out to be a very original idea with
all the basic information. I guess to an extent
it worked because one judge even commented on
how my voice came through so well. Yay!!!!
It's tough to write so much into such a tiny
space and give an editor or agent an echo of
you, but with just the right tone and well chosen
words you can express so much about yourself that
it amazes me (not that mine was perfect, believe
me it was far from it), but the point is to learn
from this contest and that's exactly what I've done.
I hope to send this ms. to either Cobblestone Press
for their Tryst line or Kensington's Aphrodisia line
and thanks to another Romance Divas We All Win contest
I feel very confident in my abilities to write a
decent query letter--hopefully one that will snag
the editors attention and rope me a contract.(big grin)
So, if you're a writer looking for help then visit the
Romance Divas. I promise you, you will not regret it.
This is the largest FREE resource I have found during my
four years of writing and not only will you learn so
much, but you'll find yourself in the middle of the
biggest family you've ever seen. Romance Divas know
no strangers and they immediately welcome you as if
you're a long lost family member. Where else can you
find a vast collection of knowledgeable writers in
various genres willing to answer any questions big or
small plus lending a shoulder to cry on, a big hug
during good times or bad, or prayers for those in
need. No where that I've found. I'm proud to be
a Romance Diva and I invite anyone who visits
my blog or my website to come on over and join
us. Become part of our family.
