Query #1 is out!

Busy with Canterwood deadline all weekend, BUT did do something exciting on the YA front on Monday. I sent out my first query! Just one to test the waters and now all I can do is wait. But I barely have time to think about the waiting since everything else is so busy--personally and with writing.

Fingers crossed, though, on this query! *wants a four-leaf clover*

And it's agent query time!

(Cross posting from my other blog because Jessica Ashley's really the one querying...)

Wrote my first agent query letter last night since, well, 2006 and it's going to need some tweaking before it's ready to go out. Exciting, though! Got my agent list set and plan to query soon. Crossing my fingers!

Jessica Ashley is Jessica Burkhart :)

Made the official announcement on my other blog that Jessica Burkhart is my pen name. I thought it was definitely time to start connecting my real name to my pseudonym. I'm starting to get farther along in the YA proposal process and will likely start the agent search soon.

Yay for linking names! Finally! :)
