I planned to query Penguin Books UK regarding my novel, but time slipped away. On Twitter, I found out Penguin Books UK was accepting queries directly from writers until the end of October. Publishing companies don’t normally accept queries directly from writers, so it was a great opportunity to try and get my revisions done and query. Unfortunately, I haven’t finished my revisions to send a completed manuscript, so I’ll have to pass on this opportunity.
Even though I won’t make the deadline, I’m still revising my novel for future querying. But first, I must figure out how to write a query letter. I never thought I’d get this far to query my manuscript. I’ll need a tagline and a short synopsis, which I will research the proper way to create a query letter. It will be good for me to work on, because people keep asking what my book is about. Below is a quick synopsis—it isn’t the best, but it’s a start for tweaking..
“When Sydney meets Arcane in a chat room one Chicago weekend, she doesn’t expect their relationship to progress at full speed to the point of mental and physical possession. In order to escape and heal, Sydney must change her identity, but Arcane bleeds into her new life—forcing her new identity to finally fight back.”
It’s time to get ready for the weekend. Before I go, I thought I'd share a few pictures I took yesterday during our walk.
This is the tunnel of an old railroad station.
And some cows we met along the way.
Holly—there are few places in Germany where it grows and we happen to find some along the trail.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween! Trick or Treat!
