Chapter Six: Re-reading My Old Query Letter

I re-read my query letter of a year ago over the weekend. Sad to say, it falls short of being "totally fascinating." To my credit, it's not "too cutesy" either. It's somewhere in that nondescript middle wasteland of not too good but not too bad. It's got to move way up on the Intriguing Meter!

I've decided the letter needs a rewrite so I'll be searching online for advice and samples of outstanding queries that grabbed the attention of a literary agent and got their authors book deals.

So keep reading all those ideas and recommendations about writing query letters until you find a formula that's right for you. I'll be right there with you for days and weeks to come!
