"Six years, two novels, 19 query drafts"
I just wanted to say thank you for Query Shark. It took me six years, two novels, and nineteen query letter drafts, but not only was I finally offered representation ... she also sold my novel in December. When I was thinking today of the people who helped me get to this point, I realized just how helpful your site was. I pretty much memorized your entries over the past ten years in order to craft what became my successful query letter. Without that help, I'd probably still be spinning my wheels. I'm not sure how many success stories you hear, and I'm sure some days you wonder if keeping the blog going is worth it, but it was certainly invaluable to me. So thank you.
