Some of you may, and some of you may not, know that I have been interning at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. When I grow up, I want to be a children's book literary agent....and a fantastic, kick-ass writer. 

It's been almost three months now, and I am learning tons. But the number one thing I've got is what a query letter should or should not be. I'll also be learning about contracts soon, but that's not nearly as exciting.

In the mean time I've decided to launch my first contest. 

The rules are as follows:

1. Post your Query Letter in the comment section of this blog.

2. Only post ONE. 

3. If you'd like me to reply to you, leave your email address.

4. I will choose 5 top Queries and explain why I would request pages - right here on this blog.

5. I will also choose 5 Queries in need, and email you directly what you can do to improve them. 

6. And, who knows, I just might tell my boss there's a book she MUST read!

7. The contest ends 3/23/13

Good Luck and may the Best Queries Win!!

  2. Hi Debbie!
    Well, I guess everyone else either didn't want to share their query or they got to writing and forgot.

    Good news for you. I will copy this and email you my thoughts so I can go more in depth.

    Good work!


  3. Well crap. I found this a little too late. I hope you do it against sometime. I can help spread the word.

    1. I will - but Debbie got some great insider advice!!
