I did it! I sent out my very first ever query/synopsis and man, what a thrill! lol Okay okay. It wasn't THAT exciting but my pulse definitely quickened as I moved the cursor over the send button.

I wrote it down in my journal/planner and marked my calendar.  Historical moment for LJ Boldyrev :)  

And now, as I sip the last few drops of bedtime story herbal tea, I reflect quietly on today's progress.  It was a good day.  Dare I say it?  Yes.  I'm proud of myself :)

Good night

Oh girl! I know the feeling! There is nothing to describe it! I hope you read through tons of blogs for advice on these beasts!

I know I only did a little research and I look back ony my query/synopsis now and wish I never emailed them out! lol! It's all a learning process on finding what works for your novel! Good luck for the next step and I am proud of you to!

Herbal tea? Your my kind of girl! I love tea!

lol Thanks, Sara! I did a lot of research. Harold Underdown's book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Children's Book Publishing as well as underdown.org and http://misssnark.blogspot.com/ helped a great deal. I fully expect rejection but I'm feeling accomplished, none the less.
I do wish I had waiting for my website to be completed but you live and learn.

As for tea, you should try Russian Royal Tea. It's incredible. Thanks for following!
