Well, Book 1 hasn’t left for the self-publishing industry yet, but it’s getting its bags ready.
In the last Query Report, I had twelve live queries left. I added one a few days ago. But some of those queries are now obviously stale, others have been confirmed dead. So, as of today, I have six queries still live (some of which I’ll call dead in about a month, the rests are either still young or allow for a follow-up if I get no answer.)
All of those confirmed dead queries died by form letter. No request for manuscripts, no personalized feedback.
So that’s where I’m at. Frustrated, but still clinging to a forlorn hope.
