Currently reading - Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
(Yes, I'm reading very slowly on purpose. It's still a few weeks before True Blood - Season 2 comes out on DVD.)
Rick Daley asked me to give another shout out for his Query Me This Challenge at The Public Query Slushpile. All you have to do is craft a query letter and the first five pages based on the story parameters he's given in any genre your little heart desires. Or you can just send him the query.
The point of this exercise is (a) to see if great query letters actually have a great novel to back them up and (b) to show how different writers can run in different directions with the same idea.
So far only two people besides Rick and me have answered the call.
So my precious little lurkers (yes, I know you're out there), practice your query writing skills and send them over to Rick. He'll probably let you be anonymous if you're concerned. You won't regret it!
