Do you all remember Blog Reader Kristin who Saved the Day?
She was instrumental in keeping the blog alive back in 2019. (I've failed miserably on keeping it up, but that's probably because I haven't been to Malice in three years...right?)
But I digress.
I heard from Kristin recently (ok, October) with this wonderful news:
Hope you are doing well. I'm just wading through your QueryShark cove to share some giddy news. I signed a publishing contract with Lake Union Publishing for my debut novel.
It would've taken me eons longer to arrive at this writerly-milestone had you not helped me with my query -> that got me my agent -> who sold my second (technically, third) novel. And it all started with me fangirling your blog. Thank you. T.H.A.N.K. Y.O.U.
That's some very awesome news, so I immediately swam over to
Amazon and pre-ordered her book The Hint of Light.
