What is the appropriate response in a situation such as this: you query an agent and get rejected. Then, 4-8 weeks later, you enter a contest with not a single word of your query or first pages changed, and get a request. Do you just chalk it as a busy/forgetful agent not remembering the earlier query (or possibly even a naughty gremlin assistant rejecting things for him/her) or should you mention that they've already passed on your work, save yourself another rejection, and save their time?

they could have forgotten reading it before, an assistant could have read it, there list could have changed, they could just be looking for something like that now, they could have had a bad day. 

I would not mention the previous rejection. Just send.

Is there any room in the market place for lighthearted MG adventures told through animals--or must everything be darker ?

Cover Reveal: MARKED by Sarah Fine 

Check out the gorgeous cover for Sarah Fine’s MARKED, her adult urban fantasy/romance, which pubs on January 1, 2015!

A little about the book:

In a broken landscape carved by environmental collapse, Boston paramedic Cacia Ferry risks life and limb on the front lines of a fragile and dangerous city. What most don’t know—including her sexy new partner, Eli Margolis—is that while Cacy works to save lives, she has another job ferrying the dead to the Afterlife. Once humans are “Marked” by fate, the powerful Ferrys are called to escort the vulnerable souls to either eternal bliss or unending fire and pain.

Unaware of Cacy’s other life, Eli finds himself as mesmerized by his fierce and beautiful partner as he is mistrustful of the influential Ferry clan led by the Charon—who happens to be Cacy’s father. Cacy, in turn, can no longer deny her intense attraction to the mysterious ex-Ranger with a haunted past. But just as their relationship heats up, an apparent hit takes the Charon before his time. Shaken to the core, Cacy pursues the rogue element who has seized the reins of fate, only to discover that Eli has a devastating secret of his own. Not knowing whom to trust, what will Cacy have to sacrifice to protect Eli—and to make sure humanity’s future is secure?

Ask Me Anything: Multiple Offers of Representation 

Recently someone asked what they should do if they’re in the lucky position that more than one agent offers on their manuscript.

First I’m going to say that’s awesome.

Next, I’m actually going to defer to a brilliant post written by the fabulously talented MarcyKate Connolly who found herself in that exact position when she queried her forthcoming novel, Monstrous.

Here’s what she says.
