Queries, Qualms, & Quirks asks published authors to share their successful query letter and discuss their journey from first spark to day of publication.
Book Club Fiction Jessica Strawser joins Queries, Qualms, & Quirks this week to discuss not believing in her own writing, being inspired by the authors she interviewed, realizing successful authors are regular people, the difference between knowing what a good query letter is and writing your own, the overlap in publishing schedules, worrying you’ve wasted so much time, advice from Debbie Maccomber, and not being afraid to take a pause.
Jessica Strawser is editor-at-large for Writer’s Digest, contributing editor at Career Authors, and author of five popular book club novels, including the Book of the Month selection NOT THAT I COULD TELL. Most recently, A MILLION REASONS WHY released in a new paperback edition, and her latest, THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, hit shelves March 22 from St. Martin’s Press.
