The web site for Susan Rose...writer and business tycoon

> > >
Welcome to RoseBud, the site where inquiring minds can find out what's new with me, Susan Rose. I started this site to keep my friends and family up-to-date on the progress of my novel, Confessions of a Frog Kisser. Since publishing the book, this site has morphed into whatever I feel like making it at any given time! To find out a little more about me and my goings on, take a look through the site. I'd love to hear from you, especially if I say something in the blog that strikes a chord. So drop me a line anytime.

Taking Another Plunge

Deep breath. I've started sending out queries for Bad Heir Days Are Murder. That's right, I've got a solid draft and now it's time to see if I can find an agent to bring Ellie and her gang to life.

Looking for agents is so hard! Not in a bad way, but let me tell you... it's tough to put together a package that you know will probably be rejected. Not because the book isn't good. That's like number 5 on the rejection meter. But because agents are so inundated with queries they can't possibly take on everything.

So, wish me luck. It will be a slow process. I've sent out four queries and gotten two responses, one of which was a request to go ahead and submit a paper query (not quite a request for a partial, but still interest so it's a good thing). I guess that means I need to really polish up my first three chapters...better get to work.

Go, Susan!!!! Send out a TON more queries! You have a much better chance of roping in some interest when you spread yourself around. Work on it this weekend, ok??

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
