I have yet to meet a writer that loves to compose query letters. And for a good reason. It’s painful to summarize a 60,000 word novel in a paragraph or two. Knowing the “ingredients” of a query letter makes the task only a tad less daunting.
Never fear, though. Help is at hand. You can read 35 successful query letters HERE, including commentary from the agents who accepted them.
Nothing compares to reading these in the flesh. Successful letters have rhythm and style. You can write one, too!
