Last spring I put the final touches on what some publishers would call a memoir. I am not sure what the genre is - part self help, part story, part devotional and part guide. The book is titled "Umm, God, How Do I Sit on the Toilet?" As you can see, there is a great deal of humor too.
Now, I am working on query letters, researching publishers and hoping that someone will take a chance on me. So far, nothing but I am hopeful.
The difficulty is the query. Advice is that the query should reflect your style of writing. As you know, I am a former English teacher and published author but my most comfortable style of writing is conversational. I like to feel that I am writing and speaking directly to you the reader. Perhaps that will resonate with some readers.
I hope to have a solid draft on the query by next week because I also need to start work on another project. Next years Kid's for Christ VBS program.
Sigh, if only these deadlines came with a paycheck . . . .
