I used QueryTracker to keep track of my agent queries (see my post on Anita Howard's blog on Friday, April 8). It was helpful for me (an unorganized person by nature) to have everything all in one place. I could research agents, read about queries, and note my own query progress.
This article QueryTracker--In Brief: the Path to Publication was posted on Monday, March 28 and written by Carolyn Kaufman. It makes so much sense--and puts all the pieces of the "road" in one succinct post. I encourage everyone who considers themselves a writer to read it!
Everyone's journey is different, but this post is helpful to put all elements of the road to publication in one place.
