The familial atmosphere stuff is directly from their website… not my wording, but I’ll cut it. I’m revising now and reading suggestions at the same time, so it’s in the works. I’m definitely glad I decided to post it before sending. Thank you much, Jeanne.
Jim, I appreciate your comments beyond belief. He only asked for sample chapters and a “real query”, didn’t really ask for the full ms… just wanted to get a feel of my writing, I guess. Thanks for your comments, though. Learning to write a proper query is important… might as well learn here.
