"I’m the assistant publisher of four digital-only imprints of Entangled Publishing, Covet, Brazen, Bliss and Scandalous.I began my career at Simon and Schuster’s Touchstone/Fireside imprint in 2008. Shortly after, I hopped over to the agency side of the business and rapidly climbed the ranks to become a literary agent at BookEnds, LLC, where I had way too much fun for a person sitting in an office and gained an invaluable perspective on this ancient and ever-evolving industry."
Lauren kindly accepted my request to join her blog Slushpiletales as a QueryDice Hijacker. Readers may submit a query and Lauren and/or one of her ninja hijackers will provide a friendly critique of the query. As Lauren notes, the idea owes its incarnation to the tremendous Ms Janet Reid who runs the chum-chomping Query Shark blog for writers in dire querying straits (as you know, I've been there. I've no doubt I'll be there again!).
Lauren and her team provide great commentary - and it is a fantastic opportunity to have someone from 'the other side' offer expert opinion on how to move from "meh" to "manuscript, please!"
If you have a finished manuscript and you want to know if your query is pitch-perfect, drop it here. Have fun and good luck.
