Okay, so WHY did I spend all those hours on my knees connecting the mythology between various angels and their corresponding gods if I was going to refer to them as angels in my query letter? I didn't even mention the word angel until Chapter FIVE of THE WIND WALKER and even then it's only to explain that they AREN'T really angels. I picture the agent or reader sitting at a desk: vampire, vampire, angel, fairy, vampire, demon, werewolf, all of the above, angel, vampire, angel...OOOH, thank God, a dystopian.
Micka is so real to me, I wish I could just send her with the emails to explain herself. Clearly, she has the worst agent in the world in me.
