And if you’re a fiction author slogging your way through the query trenches, it’s hard not to feel alone, flustered, and frustrated.
Having sent hundreds of queries and received hundreds of rejections, I know just how brutal the querying and submission process can be. Distilling your brilliant story down to a 250-word query is arguably more difficult than writing the blasted thing in the first place.
That’s why having a professional editor behind you can make all the difference.
I’ve coached dozens of authors through the process of querying, submitting, and finding their agents.*
*I even do it for free. (See below.)
If you’re looking for some query TLC, you can book a flat-fee submission package for $150. This includes:
- Two developmental, structural, and line-level passes of your query letter (750 words or less)
- Two developmental, structural, and line-level passes of your synopsis (1000 words or less)
- Two developmental, structural, and line-level passes of your first five pages (Times New Roman size 12 font, double-spaced, 1” margins)
- Two developmental passes of your Twitter pitch (140 words or less)
If you’re interested in getting all the services above (plus a full manuscript edit) for free, consider applying to #WriteMentor.
This year, I will once again be partnering with the indomitable Reena Deen. Check out my 2022 wish list below.
