Query Letters That Succeed
Need help writing a query letter? The query process can be scary, confusing and alienating, particularly for writers who have yet to chalk up runs on the board in terms of publication.
Jane Friedman has recently added a post on this subject. She targets fiction writers but will be providing another post for those who write nonfiction.
As an inveterate info hunter on the Web, I’m used to an incredibly mixed informational bag in bloglandia. Jane’s post stands out. She’s generous with her experience, educates in a friendly way, and covers the important aspects of a topic. In explaining the rationale for each part of the literary query process, she demystifies it.
There is no guarantee that a great query will lead to getting your work accepted, but Jane identifies how to be professional about the process.
