Also, she graciously agreed to answer a few more questions for the purposes of this reveal post, so here they are. (Some of them, as you will see, are much more relevant than others... :) )
KV: What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
VM: Cocoa marble fudge!
KV: What's the coolest place you've ever been?
VM: Sign Forest, Yukon, Canada.
KV: Well, of course I had to Google "Sign Forest, Yukon, Canada" to see what was so cool about it, and I found this nifty collection of photographs on Tabblo. I can definitely see what's so cool about it:) All right, back to the questions!
What's the coolest place you still want to visit?
VM: Some place with a really old castle and a morbid history.
KV: What query-writing suggestions do you have?
VM: Practice query writing--basically summarizing something you know really well--by writing them for books you've read, or for your friend's manuscript, then compare to back cover blurbs. This is great practice for verbal pitching too.
KV: Any last words of advice or encouragement you'd like to share with us?
VM: You're in the right place, on the right path, keep working hard! But remember to have fun too!!
And there you have it! Winners coming up in a few hours...
