Thank You

I try to read every query and every comment on this blog. It's tough, but I try. Many of you have thanked me for starting this and maintaining it, but I can only take partial credit for it. Sure, it was my idea and I moderate it, but the real benefit is not from me. It's from all of you who read the queries and offer your input.

I also need to spread that thanks out to everyone who has helped promote this blog, especially Nathan Bransford, who included a link in one of his This Week in Publishing posts and helped me go from 56 visits one day to 473 the next. He's also gracious enough to allow the occasional link in the comments on his blog. Janet Reid has also allowed links in the comments on her blog. If, by any odd chance, there is someone reading this who has not yet visited either of the aforementioned agent blogs, you really need to check them out.

Some time I'll be adding on links to other writing-centric blogs. There are many good ones out there that help you delve deeper into the craft, like The Innocent Flower, the QueryTracker blog, and The Literary Lab, and some that are fun ways to stretch your creative muscles, like Come in Character.

So thanks all the way around, and good luck!

Oh, and one shameless plug. I have another blog, My Daley Rant, where I let loose with life's little absurdities. If you really want to thank me, stop by there and leave a comment!

Wow, thanks for the link over! I think you are doing a great job maintaining this site. And everybody who participates, good job! I haven't participated much yet since I'm not querying, but I will when I enter into those waters.

I wish I had time for Come in Character. It just seems like such a neat idea!

Rick, I'm so sorry I missed this! Thank you for mentioning the site. That was unbelievably nice of you.

Thanks!

Mari - Thanks, I think it's fun there. Pop in anytime, even if it's just for a moment. :-)

Thanks again, Rick!
