Lately it seems I've been sending them out, but not getting them in. I'm beginning to wonder if my e-mail address is hitting the spamguards and getting chucked to the spam box. Ironically, the snail mail SASES come back sooner than the e-mail.
Just in case you haven't begun formulating your query, here are a few good links.
Seekers- Make sure to read this post and the next day's. They're both very informative.
Miss Snark-She's always a good read. This particular post deals with one of the most important things about your query letter.
Janet Reid-And this is from the agent herself. Can you believe it? I'll definitely take this advice. LOL
Rachelle Gardner- She posted this very recently, just like the Seekers. It's good to know that in the end, it's the story (and all it entails) that ultimately hooks the agent.
Charlotte Dillon- More samples of real queries that sold the story.
And there's tons more info all over the net. Are any of you in the query stage yet? Written a bad one? A good one? I'd love to hear how it's going for you. As for me, since I'm not getting any bites I'm starting to think I may need to rewrite my query.

So, is anyone going to the ACFW meeting in Tampa on Saturday? Let me know. I'd love to meet someone I "know" in person. :-)
