I hope everyone had a wonderful memorial day weekend! I spent three days by my sister's pool. Now I'm sick. :( But it was fun!
I've began work on my query again. With the help of Jen Daiker and From the Query to the Call e-book, I've written another query!
Barren Reed never thought searching for his father's treasure would kill him.
Barren is a pirate and a notorious enemy of the government of The Orient. To complicate things, Barren is related to the royal family (the nephew of the King), and that same government is also searching for Jess's treasure.
But Barren's greed isn't what motivates his search for the treasure, and his suspicions turns out to be correct when he discovers the treasure is cursed and killing not only his wife and closest friend, but his entire race--the Elves. Barren must destroy the device before everyone's life--including his own--is taken. There's only one problem--the device cannot be destroyed without killing its attacker. Barren must make a choice--watch his wife waste away, or cease to exist himself.
It's very different from the other approaches I've taken. Thanks for everyone's help!! I'm gonna need a lot more. :D
I've also joined the July Blogfest! You can click on the link and see Deana Barnhart's wonderful idea to motivate all of us to write our queries and query agents. :) Excitement.
Now, I will return to my applications and my book revisions. I have two more chapters to finish writing (which isn't that hard cause they are already written), and a chapter at the end to delete. Then I'm finished, lol. Easy edit. Then I'm gonna read it ALL!!!
