From Lamplight to Steam

Lamplight's still being queried. My querying adventures so far read something like a chick lit novel. I know they say finding an agent is like dating - didn't know it would be the Bridget Jones version. I'm happy to share these stories once I've signed with an agent or moved on.

For now, I'm moving on to Steam - my WIP. I'm about 1300 words in and thought I'd share some fun research - welcome to the very first motorcycle. A steam powered bike from 1896. The creator actually died of a heart attack while riding it, so, there's a little room for improvement. Don't try this at home, folks.

Totally agree... querying is like dating! But I imagine it's even worse and more like *blind* dating.

Your query is you, sitting at the coffee shop, hair and makeup in place. The guy walks in, takes one quick look, and says, "Sorry, you're not my type."

And you're like, "WAIT! Talk to me! Let me know the show you the kind of person I..."

And he's gone.

Or you do an innocent drive by, and he happens to be out getting his mail and he thinks he recognizes your car and you step on the brakes to get out of there and run over his cat...
