More Article From Script Magazine

Hello, everyone!

I've been busy lately. I finally finished my novel. Now I'm working on the next step, querying agents. I had written a query letter. and sent it off to a few agents. So far I've gotten rejection. I took some time to write a new query letter. When comparing it to the first letter, the second is much better.

I have the book GUIDE TO LITERARY AGENTS. It is full of agents. This is a great book to have. Using it is so much easier than spending hours on line searching for agents.

I'll keep everyone updated on my efforts in getting a literary agent.

Now for business.

Following are some articles from SCRIPT MAGAZINE I got from their email newsletter. Check them out.
