Do you have a query that you need help. polishing? Think your query is dead on? Do you have what it takes to write a great query? Can you lend a helping hand?
I'm about to do my first query and I'm stumped one minute, then think it's perfect the next...but, alas, I'm chicken...I was going to go to submit mine to the Query Shark but I thought that we woman could give each other a hand first (maybe a more gentle hand ) before we dive into the deep waters of, well, sharks!
anyone not chicken? I think this is about as difficult and important as writing the actual novel!
I see where you're going with this! and no, it's not curt...it's necessary! I'll work on this a bit and get a revised copy here. Do you really think this is bad online or ok? I've seen others do it, so I don't see the harm, but then again I'm not a literary agent with an attitude...
I find it's hard to be blunt and to the point since I don't want anyone to know what really happens until they read the actual book...but that really isn't the point of the query, is it... I'm supposed to give the entire book away, hook, line, and sinker, so someone doesn't have to read the whole book to know what happens...I'll keep that in mind when I rework it.
I really appreciate your help...if you think else where online would be safer to do this, let me know.
