What Do You Want To Read Next?

The Winning Queries Series is uber-popular and I've had lots of great feedback - thanks very much to those who took the time to email, tweet and comment.

We're winding up tomorrow with advice from internationally published Helen Lowe (HarperCollins) and her agent Robin Rue of  Writer's House... but what then?

What would YOU like to see next on Seeking the Write Life?  What would interest you?  I've been considering:

1.  Your query letter drafts - submitted for feedback and help from other readers.


2.  Most writers go through extensive revisions with their agents and editors prior to publication.  What about a series of tips and tricks from writer's who've been through the process and could help us 'jump the revision line' so to speak?



Comment!  Email me!  Tweet me!  Tell me what you'd like to read.


  1. Hi Aimee,

    Great blog and insightful posts!

    How about a series on the various e-publishing platforms and a comparison of the best ones?

    I cordially invite you to visit my "Writers Welcome Blog" and "Writers Thought for Today"

    Enjoy everyday!

  2. Hi John, thanks for stopping by. I'm focusing on the traditional publishing arenas at this point, but do plan some self-pub and e-book stuff later, so I'll definitely put that on the list. Thanks!

  3. #2, #2, #2!!! Despite my aversion to it, I need all the revision tips I can get! :)

  4. Ha! I know what you mean. Duly noted :)

  5. This has been a great series. I hate synopsis. I don't know why but I seem to rattle on. Those are deadly for me as much as revisions. Oh, and on revisions, when is it enough. When to stop tweaking. Very good series. I hope come 2011 you will start us all off from conception of the idea to the finished project. Excellent blog.


  6. Great ideas, Nan, thank you. I'll see what I can do!
