How To Write Query Letters ... or, really, how to revise query letters so they actually work
P&E rocks. "Shark repellent" - LOVE IT!
Those are great!I've never heard of the site. I'll check out the link.
Hey, fellow readers! We'd better radio for a bigger boat!
Congratulations, Janet! You well deserve the honor!I don’t write fiction, or at least I am not currently working in fiction. I’ve also taken a number of online memoir classes at Gotham Writer’s Workshop (another terrific resource). In these classes and in my local writer’s group, I am continually urging people to visit this site, to read the queries that make it and, more important, those that fail. This site is among my five best sites for writers of all genres. Thank you for all you do for us and, once more, congratulations!
Grats, Janet, on this recognition of what so many have discovered to be an invaluuable resource.
Congratulations, Ms. Shark!I've sent many, many people to that site, after hopelessly trying to explain to them that no, it's not wonderful news when an "agent" writes to you and says they've got a special relationship with a publisher who is guaranteed to publish your book...
Gentle Reider,You're lissome and toothsome,not gruesome.
Congrats and well deserved. :)
What took them so long?Big congrats, Janet!
Awesome. You deserve the recognition.
You deserve the award for all you do to educate writers. I have learned so much here!
Interesting that P&E's sample query letter breaks just about every rule the Sharp espouses. I'm just sayin'.
For those interested I found Sean Ferrel's query letter to Janet for Numb at http://www.guidetoliteraryagents.com/blog/CategoryView,category,SuccessfulQueries.aspxCheck it out.
Orlando that link got cut off for me. Can you repost?Also, word!
Alex, I just noticed what you meant by "cut off" I'll type it in.www.guidetoliteraryagents.com/blog/CategoryView,catergory,SuccessfulQueries.aspx
Awww, this is so nice! Congratulations! Both sites are a must for every writer.
Congratulations, Janet! That's great.
