Tip of the Day: for more information about queries, make sure to check out our old query posts for tips, sample queries that worked, and more.
After the Query Challenge I issued last week, several of you wanted to know more about queries. So for the next few weeks, it will be Query Central here on Tuesdays.
Q1: What is a query?
Basically it's a one-page letter you write to an agent or editor telling them about the current book you are pitching and brief information about your writing history.
Q2: What isn't a query?
It's not a summary of the book, but merely a teaser for more. Think back cover copy that makes you want to fork over your hard-earned money to buy the book.
Q3: What does a query look like?
For those of you who skip over the pink text at the top, there's tons of info on our blog archives about queries. Including sample query letters from Deena, Tina, and Lisa (who could ask for more?). Just click here or on the "Queries" label on the side.
Next week, I'll share one of my own queries!
