Friday Feast: #MSWL, Queries, Rejection, Publishing, and Reviews

popcorn having a marchWe’re coming ’round the snow mountain and the February of Doom. I love March and its hope for renewal and warmth. Some of my favorite people on the planet were born in March. It’s the only month that works as an action verb.

March forth with plans to research agents, submit queries, publish books, and endure rejections and reviews.

Special note to Greater Boston area novelists:
