Dear Miss Snark,
What on earth is one to do when sending out query letters, but have no publishing credits whatsoever to mention? This situation reminds me of looking for jobs after school: can't get one unless you have experience, but can't get experience if you can't get a job.
I've searched your blog under "credits" but found nothing that answered this point blank. If I missed multiple responses in the archives, I apologize. Hit me with the clue gun.
My love to the pooch.

MS says: you don't need pub credits. If you have them, great, but I've taken on people who've never been published ever before. And I've sold their stuff.
