39 Days!
anthonyhodge
So, since I do not like to work, I do medical studies for a living. I got to school online and I do medical studies! HAHAHA! It's not really funny, but what is funny is that I'm stuck at PPD in Austin for 39 days! Well, 35 now! OMG! I've sent more queries and I've had no luck so far. But I know that someone will want to see my book, someday. I'm really done editing and revising my manuscript and it's in pretty good shape. I've started working on the second one in the series! I'm working on chapter 5!
P.S.
I would not suggest http://www.authonomy.com/ it is a terrible site, FYI.

Amazed . . . and not in a good way
anthonyhodge
Just another one of those bad days where I feel like all hope is lost. Feeling like no one will ever pick up my story and say, "Hey, this could be a book." UGH! How did those people do it? What did their first drafts look like? What did their query letters look like? How did they get so lucky? I'm crazy, I know.

How?
anthonyhodge

How is this right for anyone to do? Sending out queries is so hard! It's way harder than I ever imagined. I'm starting to realize that this is going to take a very, very, very long time. Some rejections are so impersonal and some hit you hard. I may never get an agent . . .  but I'm not going to give up without a fight! Maybe I'm crazy and foolish. I am literally chasing a shadow. The only thing that's helping me right now is
http://authonomy.com it is a wonderful site. Until tomorrow!

E-mail and stuff
anthonyhodge

I sent out 5 queries today. Already I got a polite suggestion from an agent. I emailed her back thanking her for her info and made the changes. Danny is probably in San Antonio right now putting a deposit on our lovely car. Not much going on today. I can't wait till school starts back up again! 

On another note, to anyone who finishes a book, good for you. Just know that you WILL get rejections and you may never see your book in a book store or library. But never EVER give up!!! Reach for the stars! Never let your dream fade away, whatever it may be.

Another first . . .

I submited my query to Ms. Kristin Nelson yesterday. Today, I got a polite, standard  R from her. Enough said! Tomorrow, Danny is going to go put money down on our car :)

There's always a 'first' for everything
anthonyhodge

Well, today is a day for a lot of firsts! This is my first blog entry and I sent off my very first query today! How exciting . . . I thought it was, but now I’m feeling a tad bit foolish. I keep asking myself if I am crazy, and maybe I am, but I do have a dream and I can’t just let it fade away.

On another subject, me and Danny are going to go test drive THE CAR tomorrow. I’m so excited.
