The Query Letter
If you go the traditional publishing route, you will need to write a one page query letter using the submissions guidelines you will find on the agent or publisher web sites. In it you will use your dust jacket synopsis of the story, tell how many pages or words, what genre, and audience. You will need to include biographic information or tell what qualifies you to write this book. There are many sources giving advice on how to write the perfect query letter. Search on Google and lots of advice will come up. Be sure to check submission guidelines to see what the agent/editor wants in the query letter.
I'm a serious writer, meaning I have a regular daily writing habit, and I'm interested in sharing my work through publication. My favorite literary form is the novel. I write to entertain myself and my readers.
