Tara Gallina's Current Query

Today it's back to work here at the QQQE. Well, actually, today is the easy part, tomorrow is the work.

Anyway, today I'm featuring Tara Gallina's current query. If you don't know Tara, please go visit her blog, and become a follower.

Back? Great.

Now please keep in mind, today is just for introductions, and so you can have a chance to read the query without my redline. Please save your feedback for tomorrow.

Here we go:

NOTE: The details of this query have been removed at the request of the author.

That's it!

Please thank Tara for her courage, and say hello in the comments, but remember to save your critique for tomorrow.

Interesting premise. I particularly intrigued by the mixture of mythology the writer mentions. Hmm... Can't wait to see the comments tomorrow!

i already know what i want to say. But i bet Matt covers it all tomorrow. He's sneaky like that ;)

Rusty Webb said...

Looking forward to tomorrow's breakdown of what works and what doesn't.

Thanks for sharing Tara. Sounds like a good one for tomorrow then.

Very nice! I can't wait to read your thoughts on it, Matt. :)

Samantha Jean said...

The story really does sound interesting. At the end, where you compare it to 2 other writer's works, I believe you have the wrong author's name for the Firelight series. Sophie Jordan wrote the Firelight series. I looked to see if there was another Firelight book written by a Sophia Taylor, but did not find anything. I look forward to reading Matt's suggestions!

Hello Tara. Nice meeting you.

Sounds like a great concept...I am a total sucker for mythology-charged storylines!
