I know you’re probably wondering about the connection between the Georgia Guidestones and finding answers to query bio questions. I was kind of wondering myself until it suddenly came to me (because I wanted to use this neat picture): mysteries!
Those guidestones are one great big mystery plopped down in a field in the middle of nowhere (no offense to Elberton, Georgia). And if you’re a writer, working on finding an agent, you might feel as if you’ve plopped down right in the middle of a query mystery. We’re always looking for answers to our query questions, aren’t we? Well, friends, this post’s for you.
Um, technically, not this post. It’s this post over at Agent Courtney. Agent Courtney had a swell contest wherein she agreed to critique the winners’ query bios. Her critique of the first winner’s query bio was very interesting and informative, not to mention really detailed. And she very nicely posted it on her blog for all the world to see. Like you and me.
So I hope I remember to go back to her blog and see her next couple posts for more information on what makes a winning query bio and clear up at least one mystery in my life.
(Is it just me, or do you laugh when you read “query bio”? OH. I know what it is now…bio sorta sounds like BO. And now that I think about it, I’ve probably written my share of stinky queries. Suddenly I’m not laughing so much.)
