The Query Letters went out!

I sent six query letters out via email on Memorial day. It was heart-pounding to press the "send" button. I know I have to prepare for the rejection letters, (if I am even lucky enough to get those!) but I still felt like it was a step in the right direction. At the very least, it gave me some experience summarizing and trying to form a "hook" for Poughkeepsie. I still love the story, which is nice because I have read it a boopazillion times. I still cry at "Patterns" like someone is pinching me. So now starts the waiting, which is a very inactive thing to do, but the manuscript is clean and as ready as I will ever get it. Hopefully, I am another step closer to getting Poughkeepsie back into the world where it belongs. ~MTK
