About to "query" Tom Doherty & Assoc.

I'm extremely excited about this. Tom Doherty & Associates, LLC, published Mercedes Lackey/James Mallory's The Obsidian Trilogy and The Enduring Flame Trilogy, which I LOVED. I just recently began reading The Obsidian Trilogy, and the way these two write is so magical! It's a high fantasy, but the characters are so relatable, and I fell in love with them.

SO, I decided to look into the publishers, and they accept unsolicited works. I know that Save the Queen has that same feel as these trilogies and will fit in so well. I just hope Tom Doherty & Assocs. feel the same way, too. Revo Boulanger helped me with my synopsis, and I love him!!! :-D Monday, I send out my cover letter, my first 45 pgs (they asked for 3 chapters or the first 40-60), and my synopsis.

This is really happening!
