Remember the Seinfeld episode where Elaine complains, "I'm running out of men in this city, Jerry!" That's about where I am in terms of agents, at least those who profess some kinship with the mystery/suspense/thriller world and appear to have been in business more than two or three months. So, this latest and last QueryBomb(TM) is aimed at them. All but five of these queries are snail mail -- I reserved them for the end for the most part out of sheer laziness.
So, kids, this is the last ride of the day in the agent round-up rodeo. If nothing comes of this, I suppose I'll send the ms. to those few independent publishers who take mss. over the transom, but without much hope. I'm setting up a WIP writing sked starting tomorrow (the first of the month always works for me) but how much progress I'll actually make remains to be seen. For one thing, I can't seem to shake this flu I've had since December. Hope it's not pneumonia!
