About This Gig

If you've come by way of my back cover gig, or if you're fresh from another link somewhere, you're in the right place for genre book query letter help.
I'm a multi-published author in traditional and indie publishing venues, and like many published authors, I am well practiced in the art/science/magic of writing query letters. It's one of the author industry's more universally reviled tasks (second only to a synopsis), but it also happens to be one I rather enjoy.

I know, don't judge me.

Services Offered
I will edit and tighten your existing query letter it into shape. My basic gig involves edits to a query intended for an agent or an editor of the genre book industry. Extras include quicker turn around, more revisions, and the opportunity to receive an in-depth explanation (separate) for why I suggest the edits I do.

The first step... Okay, the second step after finishing your book or short story is to start pitching, and I'm eager to help new authors start the process. You can do this! I'm here to help.

Important: See FAQ below for anyone who wants to query to my agent/editors.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long should a query letter be?
    No more than a single page, Times New Roman, single-spaced.
  • Do you help with queries to film or theater management?
    Not yet. I'm afraid my scope in that regard is too limited to charge for such services. If and when that changes, I'll revisit!
  • What if I want to submit to your agent and/or publisher?
    There is no problem with this, as I will make clear that hiring me to help with a query letter IN NO WAY constitutes a personal reference. Also note that any agreement between you (the client) and me (the freelancer) does not guarantee any favoritism from any agency or publisher.
  • Will you write my query for me?
    Nope! Sorry. This is one of those things that you need to know how to do, and the impetus of the letter must come from you. What I can do is take your raw effort and turn it into its best shape.
