Query Letter

I just spent 3+ hours working on my first query letter for CINDERFELLA.  I am attending my first writing conference this weekend in Cleveland, and I wanted to have a query ready for one of my sessions.  I am so excited and ready to learn more.

I wanted to give a few links for those interested in good websites about query letters, pitches, etc.

Time for a lunch break, but I wanted to end with one thought.  Every day, I learn more and become a better writer.  I am so thankful for the writing community, because they are so open, honest, helpful, and motivating.  Every time I begin to doubt or feel out of my league, they pull me back in with some encouragement and remind me of why I am doing this.  I received my awesome birthday present from Amanda Gordley yesterday.  My first business cards!!!!  I want to leave you with my quotation I used on the cards.  "There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you" by Zora Neale Hurston.

  1. Oh my gosh, let me know how the writer's conference goes. I've never been to one. Will you be pitching to agents? Will people be critiquing your query? Gah, how exciting!I hope you have a fantastic time.
