Queries and agents

Curious about the query letter that got me representation for GHOST? (Back then it was called IN MEMORY OF.) My agent, Kristin Nelson, is sharing it, along with her comments on what made it successful, over at her blog:

GHOST query letter and commentary

Other than the bit about the “explosive intervention of an angry student,” that summary still accurately describes the book, even several edits down the line. (And there is still an angry student who attempts to intervene, just no explosions.)

  1. Thanks for letting her post it. I haven’t read it yet. I’m waiting for the weekend when I have time, but I can’t wait. I have to work on my own query and I think yours will really help. Real life examples are so helpful.
