I'm off the site for a few days while Ms. Shark chews on the revision. It should be back up tomorrow or the next day. Take a look and let me know what you think. :)
Do you read Query Shark? If not, then let me give you the 411. Janet Reid, agent for FinePrint Literary is the blogger, the Shark and we are her chum, if you will.
You can email her your query letter and it may or may not be posted. If it’s posted she’ll critique it and others will comment. You can then revise and resend it you choose.
I love this!!! I know, all work is subjective and everyone has different opinions. And yes, it’s the query, not the synopsis, not the partial or a full. But really, this is such a great way to see what an agent thinks of the letter as well as others.
Why am I telling you this??? Because mine is up today (#51) and I’d love to know what you think. I’ve already received some fabulous feedback, both from the shark and from the commenter’s. Now that doesn’t mean that they all loved it. It means they gave me their thoughts, and I can work with those thoughts as I do the rewrite.
So, check it out, leave a comment on the post and/or come back here and leave a comment. I’d love to know what you think, good or bad.
