THE MISTAKEN Blog Tour: Day Six



Oh boy, Day 6, the halfway mark of my tour.  I’m trying really hard to pace myself, but I’m super excited.  Today, I have someone special hosting me over on his blog—Matthew MacNish at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment.  (Don't you love that pic of Matt?  He looks too cool!)      


For my guest post, Matt asked me to write about organized crime since it’s up front and center in my novel.  Matthew operates an awesome blog where he critiques agent queries, and man, is he madly successful at this difficult task.  In fact, Matthew helped me with my final query, the one that got me a request and ultimately a book deal with my publisher.  He’s gentle and kind, but he’ll thoroughly pick apart your query and tell you where it works, where it doesn’t, and why.  If you think you’re ready to query for an agent, do not proceed without first submitting it to Matt at The QQQE.  Seriously.  Don’t.  He’s that good.         


I hope you all know by now, every follower who comments here during my tour will be entered into a drawing for an ARC of The Mistaken and a bookmark.  Plus, 5 runner-up winners will each receive an ebook copy.  Winners will be determined using Random.org and notified via email.   

Tomorrow for Day 7, I visit LG Smith’s Bards and Prophets where I discuss killing off major characters.  Sounds like fun, right?  Oh yeah!

Matthew not only looks like the dude, he IS the dude.

He is really good; it's too bad I don't believe in the whole query process.
