Hi All,

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately.  We just had a baby  :baby: six weeks ago (our first) and things have been rather hectic around here.

Somewhere in between diaper changes and feedings, I spotted that Cobblestone had an upcoming theme I knew a fair amount about.  I have been working hard to put together all the information they require for a query package, but I just realized the due date is October 1st- this Sunday.

I was planning on sending it off today (Friday), but there's no way it will arrive before the due date if I send it regular postal mail.  Do you think I should send it via a priority service or do you think it will get looked at if it's postmarked by the deadline? 

I just want to make sure the query gets read after all this work on it.  Thanks in advance for your help!  (I have learned so much by reading this board!)

Congrats on the baby!

I guess I'd send it priority. It's only a few cents more, and the website doesn't specify. May as well get it there on time, IMO.

Hi Guys,

Thanks so much for the speedy replies!  I took your advice and made sure the query got there by the due date. 

I'm not sure what chance I have of being accepted since it was such a rushed process, but I'm still proud of myself for getting it out in the mail.  (I always look at themes and think I should put together a query, but this is the first time I've carried through and done it.)

Thanks again for the help!  (It's wonderful to be a part of such a supportive writing community!)
