I’ve been writing my query letters and damn, it’s rough.
Kind of feels like a cross between a resume and a final. You have to sell yourself and prove that you’re a good author in as little text as possible. Paring down the book summary has been more difficult than meeting a required word count for a short story.
How do you sell a book in three sentences? I suppose that has been answered- just look in any bookstore. But still, it’s a rough proposition.
In other news, I’m going to be adding to my portfolio page soon. I’ve decided to put up some material from the latest book I’ve been working on. Check back soon for that.
