I have yet to hear back, good or bad, on any of the queries I’ve sent this month — not counting the one that rejected me inside of an hour.
In the meantime, I’ve been amusing myself by reading critiques of other queries. I’m relieved to say I’m pretty sure I’m not as bad as the worst, although I’m certainly not as polished as the best. That’s a good place for me to be, I reckon, given my relative experience and position in this adventure.
I’ve also been using those critiques as intended, to improve my own. I think I’ve got it polished now to a point that it should take in anyone remotely interested in considering the actual book.
That is pretty satisfying, even if the email void is not.
