Good to know that the U.S. Forest Service has a great sense of humor for April Fools' Day (and thanks to Karen for sending me the link)!

Sent out query letters this week to potential agents. Used query tracker ( to find agents interested in my genre. I'm just learning how to use this great program that helps to narrow down queries to those agents most likely to be interested in a specific project, tracks progress in the query process, and provides information about agents (what type of query they accept, response rates, and form vs detailed responses). Fingers crossed!
