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.
