CRUSH your query!: How to Write An Amazing Query and Navigate the Query Trenches


You’ve finished a book and written “The end.”
First off, congratulations!!! This is a big deal.
It seems as if everybody WANTS to write a book, but few people ever do.
So pat yourself on the back. Pour a big old glass of booze or eat a piece of delicious chocolate. Buy yourself a new guitar or pair of shoes. Whatever floats your boat. But celebrate.
And then … get back to work.
You are going to need to fortify yourself to dive into the query trenches.
This book is going to help you navigate your way on that journey: from crafting your query, researching agents, writing the dreaded synopsis, and tracking your progress until …. you get THE CALL!
You are going to learn how to polish a query that will stand out from the hundreds of queries an agent gets EVERY day.
This book will walk you through every step of the process and give you examples of what has worked.
I have talented friends—okay full disclosure, I have ONE friend out of my hundreds of writer friends—who had the Cinderella-story-nab-an-agent-then-amazing-book-deal in the blink of an eye.
This book is not about that.
This book is about how the REST of us get agents and book deals.
In this book I will share with you what worked for me and how I am now a professional writer with five published books under my belt.
If you have the Cinderella story, well then God bless you and carry on. But for most of us, it’s going to take some skills, stubbornness, and the willingness to improve as a writer, in order to find the right agent and get a book deal. This book will help you get there.
