Hello, fellow blogfesters and writer friends! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I saw Deathly Hallows Part 2, and it was awesome!!
So, week three of Deana Barnhart's blogfest is pretty straightforward - post your query and let everyone critique it! Then reciprocate for them. So, here's the query I'm currently using. Please critique away!
(Mr./Ms. Last Name of Agent),
I am seeking representation for my urban fantasy novel, Countless.
Finding out she’s a witch is pretty much a complete mind blow for Eva Westvale. After all, she was just a normal Manhattanite moving up the corporate ladder and planning her wedding to her college sweetheart.
And discovering she’s lived countless lifetimes, hunted through the centuries by a sorcerer intent on possessing her soul? The icing on her perfect paranormal cake.
Now all she has to do is evade the cloaked figure that seems to show up everywhere, avoid becoming too physically entangled with the sexy shapeshifter who’s decided to help her, escape the rival shifters she’s pissed off, fit in with the other witches, learn coven politics – oh, and regain a millennia worth of memory and power so she can stay alive, soul intact.
Countless is complete at 75,000 words. Per your submission guidelines, I've included (sample pages, synopsis, whatever they've asked for on their website). I appreciate your time and consideration.

Whatcha think? I'll be hopping around over the next couple days to provide feedback on everyone else's.
Also, mark this date on your calendar: July 21st. On that lovely day, Michelle Fayard is doing a guest post on my blog about self promotion for authors! She's got some great tips to share, so stop on by!
