QQQ: Mystery Author Kellye Garrett and Kicking the Door Open

Queries, Qualms, & Quirks asks published authors to share their successful query letter and discuss their journey from first spark to day of publication. 

Mystery Author Kellye Garrett joins Queries, Qualms, & Quirks this week to discuss getting an agent offer at a bar, Pitch Wars, when your publisher abruptly shuts down, writing a book because of a headline, selling a book after a year versus five days, waiting ten months to announce a book deal, and never winning NaNoWriMo.

Kellye Garrett is the author of the upcoming suspense novel Like A Sister and the Detective by Day lightweight mysteries. The first, Hollywood Homicide, won the Anthony, Agatha, Lefty, and IPPY for best first novel. She serves on Sisters in Crime’s national board, is a former Pitch Wars Managing Director and is a co-founder of Crime Writers of Color.
