With my full length horror novel, I shot for the top in my "first round" of queries, for example, I sent it to Harper Collins. My shorts I've sent to a few magazines in the last few weeks, although I want to finish my new one and put three of them together to make Trilogy to Terrify.

My debut as an author

After a year and a half of queries with my novel, novella, and several short stories, my life changed on January 9, 2015.

You know the routine, you finally see the awaited email and you can tell even before clicking on it, it's a rejection because you can see the first few words. "Thanks so much, unfortunately..."
