Crafting the Perfect Query

Letter - Erin McRae & Racheline Maltese

With 8 sales in 12 months (3 novels, 1 novella, 2 novelettes, and 2 short stories spread across three different presses), we are the queens of query letters. In this one day seminar we'll talk about how to craft the perfect concise and compelling query or submission letter, including writing a story blurb, structuring the letter, and writing a bio that's useful and informative. Last but not least we'll talk about how to handle communications when things go wrong (forgotten attachments, incorrect files, communications lost to the spam filter and more!)
