Queries are the first step in the journey to seeing your book published. As a professional letter to an agent or publisher, it is intended to interest them in your work. The end game of a query letter? To entice the agent/publisher to request MORE of your work. So stressful? Queries? Oh, yeah. But never fear, as Operation Awesome is here!
On #QueryFriday, one lucky commenter will be chosen for a query critique. Fresh, outside eyes are often helpful in pinpointing problematic areas within a query. Your critique will be respectful of your feelings, while trying to add just a bit more shine/clarification/strength to your query. And if your query is already pretty dang good-- we'll tell you!
1.) You must comment on the #QueryFriday post in order to enter. There will be approximately one a month (except in April during the A to Z Challenge).
2.) In case of being the winner, please make it easy to contact you. If you are not comfortable with leaving your email in your comment, then please make sure that your blogging profile has your contact information listed.
3.) Entry comments will be accepted until Sunday, 12 Noon, EST. The winner will be selected by a random number generator, and announced in the comments section.
4.) Your critiqued query will be returned to you via email, in an attached document, with notes in the margins, within 7 days.
5.) If you have won a query critique, you will not be eligible to win another until 3 months have passed. Query critiques will not be done multiple times on the same query. If you enter again, it must be with a query on a new story.
