I know very little about writing query letters.

Mostly because my books have all been self-published.

However, now that these are “under my belt” as my father would say, I am considering traditional publishing. 

So, for the next few weeks, I will be doing a bit of research—and sharing what I discover about query letters on this blog.

Starting with the basic definition, a query letter is a written or printed communication addressed to a person or organization, asking a question about their potential interest in your book or book idea. 

A successful query letter should intrigue literary agents who will then want to see more: book synopsis, book proposal, sample chapters, and/or your complete manuscript.

A query letter must contain certain information, and of a specific length, and so on.

So, I invite you to learn about query letters along with me. I’ll do the research and present it as simply as possible.

Until next week.
