Query Circus!


Sam is in the querying stage!!! 

It’s been said that you should never really talk about your rejections. I’m breaking this rule. I promise not to be a jerk about it, but rejection is part of the process and if/when that happens, I’m going to share it with you.

I’m currently refreshing the crap out of my inbox. Agent #1 responds within 2-10 days and it’s been 3. Every time I get a fresh email I completely freak out. Pretty sure my soul drops through the universe. I feel sick and excited and nervous and doubtful and cocky as shit and… small. I feel small.

This is… crazy. I wrote a book. I edited a book. I got it beta’d. I cut more than 70,000 words from it. It’s beautiful. My readers love it. No matter what happens, guys… I already won this game. I’m so pleased. ^_^ Anyway. Enjoy the videos! Thanks for following!

Notice me, senpai. 


About oneofthedragons

Samantha K. Balk and F. R. Donaldson met on An Archive of Our Own, one of the many fanfiction sites online, when Sam asked Frankie to illustrate the fanfiction that would one day lead to Sam's first novel. They've been friends ever since! This blog was created as a way to share the oftentimes difficult journey any new author experiences on the uncomfortable quest of an introvert for attention to his or her most personal work. It is meant to remind you that authors don't just appear fully fledged like a George R. R. Martin, that all of us start out unsure and feeling inadequate. Feel free to ask us anything.
