🦇Gone Batty: DesAstor's Author Updates & Writing Tips🦇 - It's Querying Month!

Hey Bats!
I finished a manuscript recently, and it’s gone through its editing phase from me, my beta reader, and a lovely sensitivity reader. I’m going to begin querying, that is, looking for an agent or publisher who would be interested in my book.

A moonboard for my WIP!

Like my Vampire Wars series, it’s an urban fantasy, however, not necessarily a dystopia. That’s what the heroes have to try and prevent! It takes place in Midgard and utilizes Norse mythology to a huge degree. I wrote it in November for NaNoWriMo. Well, half of it–I finished it in the months following.
That said, this is one I’ll be querying. I need to write up a query letter (introduction to what the book is), synopsis (summary with spoilers), and research agents that would be a fit. I tried querying Red Viper a long time ago to no success. That said, I don’t regret self-publishing that series.
I’ve learned since then and am hopeful for this new series. That also doesn’t mean I’m abandoning Vampire Wars, however. Far from it! I have several more books in mind for that series.
Wish me luck in my querying journey!
Fun Facts from The Cobratongue Saga:
Jasper Arachnida
“Jasper still can’t quite believe he has a god soul, but he tries hard to reassure his brother that times change and they’re most definitely not evil any longer.”
Hades
“Hades is heavily fire resistant, something that fascinates Kelsy deeply.”
Kelsy Gardener
“Kelsy has read all of Luna’s books and is her biggest fan.”
