I hear about these from time to time, but thought folks here might appreciate one blogger's report from a query "gong show" she attended at a writing conference.

I'm suddenly so glad I have no ideas that involve vampires (for the reasons given above).

Very helpful, very useful post.

Also, more importantly, funny!

Someday I'm going to one of these in person. It seems they breed the best inside jokes.

I read that blog for 2 hours. There's great stuff there and some really funny ones.  Did you read the ten steps to correcting your manuscript.  I laughed out loud.  The animal pics were great.
Thanks for the link.  Helpful!
I said it before and I'll say it again,  this is the most helpful team of beta readers out there.

Another very helpful agent blog post about how to write a query:

I see these all the time. If you have any others, do add them!
