I thought this time around, I'd be a little more cheerful and introduce you to one of my favorite fictional pets. This is Dracula. Well, not quite.

July Wrap Up

Send out at least 1 query every week This did not happen. I was so busy, I didn't have the time to invest in it. You would think sending query letters would be a quick thing to do, especially since it's mostly copying and pasting, but it usually takes me about 15-30 minutes per email,… Continue reading July Wrap Up
