Query Critique

Query Critique 

If you plan on finding a literary agent, there's no way around a strong and professional query letter. The query letter is the first impression a literary agent or editor gets of you and your writer. As agents and publishing houses often receive dozens of submissions a week (sometimes even a day), your query letter needs to be the best it can be to catch an agent or editor's eye. A professional query letter and strong pitch will help you stand out in the slush pile.

As you know your own story in and out, you may find it hard to come up with a pitch that has all the necessary information but still manages to hook and entice the reader.

My Query Critique will help you polish your one-page query letter before you send it off to agents or editors. This includes line edits, general feedback, and questions and comments on potentially unclear points. Once you have had time to make adjustments, I will go over your query letter a second time.

This is the perfect option for those about to query agents or editors – and those whose queries have failed to catch an agent or editor's eye so far.

Rates: $70 (two passes) or $90 (three passes)
