A-Z Blogging Challenge: Q is for Query..

letter-q-iconQ is for Query. This word sends shivers down my spine. I have nightmares about it. This is the first thing a potential publisher or agent will see about the book you are trying to get published. Queries are big deals. So, how does one go about writing a good query? Is there a magical formula? I know I don’t have much advice because I haven’t sent one yet or finished writing one entirely. Here are some great articles that I hope helps. Good luck to everyone who is working on a query or querying right now!

Do you know of other resources? If so, please share it within the comments.

  1. Hello! I love writing queries, said no author ever, LoL. You’re in good company! Queries are scary because it’s the deciding factor on whether the agent or publisher wants to take a look at your manuscript. Thanks for this terrific list of querying resources. Good luck with your querying!!
