Brenda and Snowdon,
Thank you so much for sharing your queries! Critiquing your letters provided a nice break from revising my own writing. As a reward for putting yourselves out there, I'm offering both of you the same level of brutal critique on your first ten pages. Just email them (pasted in the body of an email or attached as DOC files, but NOT DOCX files) to me at : kate *at* katekaynak *dot* com in the next week or so.
I really enjoyed seeing what other people are writing these days. I'm still doing revisions on MINDER and plotting the two books I plan to write this summer. The first is the next installment of the GANZFIELD (a.k.a., MINDER) books. The other is set at Yale, with a MC who can see ghosts.
And someone needs to talk me out of writing the screenplay about the vampire and the middle-aged woman, because it's disturbingly compelling to me.
Logline: How Stella got her grave back.
