The Renegade Writers book 'Query Letters That Rock' is great, it came highly recommended by a freelancer I know and I've used it to craft my very first query this week, which I think (hope!) is pretty good. We'll see if it worked in a couple weeks, I'm sending it out on Monday.

I saw on the renegade writer website some posted query letters with feedback from the editors that read them. I can look for a link after DD falls asleep.
