Sort of Weird  
I have now been looking at manuscripts long enough that some of the ones that crossed my desk but weren't right for us are now books in stores. I went into my local B&N recently and spotted three that I had read (or read some of) in MSS form on the shelves. It's cool, but strange. And testament to the fact that a book can be right even if it's not right for us. Anyway, I bought a few and am psyched to read them. It's just weird to see them, all grown up with cover art and everything and think that I knew them when they were only a collection of pixels.

I remember when I first started seeing books at B&N that I had first met at pitch practice before the pitch sessions at Writer's Weekend. Seeing which ones had made it all the way to print sent me back to my notes, and certainly improved my own pitch.

I am paying very close attention to both the queries that make me sit up and take notice and the ones that my eyes skip over. So much easier to see what works and what doesn't in other people's work.
