[QCrit] YA Fantasy - THE STARFALL SUMMER (80k/First Attempt)

2022.01.20 22:39 peanutbutterandbeams [QCrit] YA Fantasy - THE STARFALL SUMMER (80k/First Attempt)

I’ve just started researching publishing and agents, so I welcome any and all feedback or resources. I have kind of gathered from here that (1) YA Fantasy is overdone, (2) attempting a debut with a series is ill-advised, and (3) I need comps…
Questions so far:
Is 19 too old for YA? Is including a degree in your bio only relevant if it has to do with writing? And I was trying to keep this below 250 words, but is it too vague as is?
Here’s the query:
Dear [AGENT],
Nineteen-year-old Maev has yet to listen any Songs, but she still dreams of crafting fireworks for the Night of Starfall, when the world is at its most musical. She also dreams of a record-breaking football player falling in love with her.
When Maev misses out on any Songs or true love, she makes a reckless decision that lands her very far from the home she loves. Even worse, her only company is the obnoxious and enigmatic Van. After accidentally foiling an assassination attempt and becoming the assassin’s new target, Van suggests safety in numbers. Unfortunately, he is headed to the illustrious city of South Torito—the exact opposite direction of Maev’s home.
Faced with probable death on her own or traversing a magical forest to the city with Van, Maev chooses the forest. But the forest isn’t as safe as Van claims. Deaf Tones—strange beings that kill Songs right out of the world—have reached its sanctity, and Maev is being haunted by a sinister apparition that scares her more than the assassin. If the Deaf Tones aren’t stopped, all of the world’s harmonics will be polluted and destroyed, and if Maev can’t shake her phantom, she will be overwhelmed by the hopelessness it brings.
THE STARFALL SUMMER is an 80,000-word YA Fantasy set in a melodic world where Songs manipulate plants, fire, earth, water, and metal. It is the first in a series. [COMPS]
[Bio, mention that this would be a debut, and thanks]

The executioner would then publicly ‘draw’ their intestines out and emasculate them. Once dead they’d be ‘quartered’ and their tarred remains sent to local towns

2022.01.20 22:39 someth1ngcoo1 How do I tell my boyfriend I have an eating disorder?

My boyfriend M20 and I F19 have been dating since September. I began developing an eating disorder in October 2020 and have been living with it since. I’m not ready to seek treatment because I don’t have the financial means so that isn’t an option at the moment, however I still think I need to talk to him about it. I also know he has had issues with depression in the past, and still struggles with it but not as much. I’m including this because we do talk about our mental health, so me telling him about my eating disorder isn’t out of nowhere. For the last few days telling him has just been on my mind and I don’t know how to talk to him about it.

2022.01.20 22:39 Amy_Tar What do you do with baby during wake windows?

My baby is now 5 months old. Here are the things I do with him: - singing, talking, basically communicating with him with lots of smiling and eye contact

He's pretty good at independent play and honestly he doesn't need me. He can spend half an hour staring at the ceiling and babbling away.
The thing is I.AM.SO.BORED...
Sometimes I just want to lay down next to him and scroll on my phone.
I guess my question is how long can I let him play on his own before I play with him again? What is the longest possible a baby can play by himself?

2022.01.20 22:39 BabaNurseZ If Ron Rivera doesn’t last in Washington, would you be open to give the HC job to Cooley?

Ron Rivera is currently on the hot seat if he doesn’t get the QB position correct and doesn’t have a successful season. So would you give Chris Cooley a shot? I know he hasn’t had a coaching gig, but I think he would be a great option to consider. Who would you select if Ron was relieved of his duties and what do you think of Cooley being a future HC or OC for this team?

2022.01.20 22:39 paddywalsh21 Adding supply and return to unconditioned room

I have a 2500cu ft room that never had a heart supply added. So I added an 8" supply, 13' from main duct. The room is still a few degrees lower than the rest of the house. So should I add another 8" supply or make it a return vent? There's a doorway to the rest of the house of course, but the returns to the main are opposite side of the house, like 30' from this room.
Do returns really make that big of a difference?

Title. With all of the new studios that Microsoft has acquired, it’s interesting to think about how they might take the franchise in a new direction. What do you guys think?
