I've done a few drafts of my novel and it is very close to finished. I'm going to let it sit until summer, then rework the first chapter and send query letters. I really want to post the novel on the internet between now and this summer. For fun. For feedback. For it to have a little life while it waits for the querying process.So is there any reason for me NOT to do post it, given that you told this person to query on?
Feedback is valuable only if you know the source.
If that's your idea of fun, here's my address, I have some tile that needs grouting and Killer Yapp needs his fangs sharpened.
You'll recall that the first poster had taken her novel DOWN from the net and was now querying. Putting it up there while you're just starting out isn't quite the same. The last thing you want to do is have your writing sound too familiar in a query letter these days.
