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...

I love how Sign Forest is supposed to be "the world's largest collection of stolen property." Bwahahahahahaha.
