Guess Blog Post for Matthew Rush Today!

Hey everyone,

I'm doing a guest blog post over at Matthew Rush's The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment today.

Would love it if you all could check it out! :)



  1. I'll see you over there in just a few...working down my list...not sure what order it's in, not alphabetical......


  2. Yay!!! Matthew's blog is on my list to visit, but I'll visit early to ensure I see your guest post!

  3. Jessica, just coming over from Matt's blog. Loved your query letter -- I thought it was strong on many levels. I couldn't agree more with you when you said agents should always solicit the first couple chapters with the query. The quality of the fiction should weigh heavier than the strength of a query letter.

    I didn't realize you had a full MS request! My fingers are crossed for you. The waiting must be agony. Hang in there!

    ((hugs)) Nicole

  4. Thanks for sharing, Jessica! Congrats and good luck with the submission!!

  5. I'm off to check it out!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I saw it. Thanks for sharing. You are way braver than I!

  7. Loved how you guys pulled the query apart and addressed each section with information. Great job.

  8. Great job. I really liked your synopsis and your book sounds like something I'd love to read! Good luck with the agent!!
