  1. Wow!. Complete, Concise and well elaborated on..I than you for every bit of information that you posted. Quite helpful indeed and still as mid boggling to me. You are right I should accept that there is no perfect query letter ,for it depends on whose hands it lands in and the particular mood they happen to be in at the time.
    I am thinking though , at this point that perhaps I may wait until this second novel is done and then try for a two book deal. (Dream big or go home state of mind) I thank you for you feedback on this. I hope other writers also find this useful . Much Appreciation to you..c.a.h...aka Sheridan Crow (pen name on blogger)

  2. I really want to go into traditional publishing (although tbh its too early to make that decision) but I suspect that I'm going to have to resort to non-traditional publishing for four reasons

    1) I'm a bisexual, female author
    2) I'm a female author who writes sci-fi (I.e. Not chick lit)
    3) My MC is female, bisexual and mixed race, and by the end of the book is dating a gay lady and friends with an ace lady
    4) The book is not (superficially, anyway) about gender or sexuality

    The odds are not in my favour
