Writing a query letter can be one of the most daunting tasks of the writing process. You have to pitch your entire book to an agent in ~300 words and hope they’ll be interested enough to ask for more. But when you search Google for help, all you find are sites that say, "Write a good hook!" or "Be brief in the body of the letter!"
Well, in this post, you’re going to get an (extremely) detailed breakdown of my query letter, which garnered a good number of requests. You’ll find what hooks agents, what not to include, and a step-by-step guide to tackling the formidable “back coverdescription”in the body of your letter.
Can’t believe I just failed my first assessment ever, and it was for a fucking Arts subject!!!!!!! An actual ‘F’. I’m rethinking this whole “pursue my passion” bullocks if I’m academically failing my passion, but was previously nailing ‘A’s’ in Law. FAAAAAARK.
