Let’s Fix Your Query!
QUERY CONSULT + AGENT SEARCH STRATEGY SESSION
If you're not hearing back from agents, there is a problem with your query. But not necessarily your book! Distilling an entire manuscript into a compelling and coherent few paragraphs is brutally difficult. Fortunately, it's a lot easier if we do it together. I'm not simply going to take a red pen to your current query letter and send it back to you. Unless the pitch is almost perfect already (in which case you’d have an agent by now), a one-time, red-pen correspondence is too limiting to get results. A straight edit can’t, for example, uncover the hidden genius of a book. I’m amazed how many times I talk to an author and realize the most compelling aspects of their book aren’t even in the query! That’s why I like to go deeper.
First, I’ll give your query a read, and then we'll talk on the phone so I can truly understand what makes your book special, even if it's not already on the page. Next we'll work together to show that off in a concise, professional pitch.
