Query Letter Samples
I was looking for a series of query letters so that I could get a feel as to what is expected. There are plenty in this book, along with other ideas to go with it. But quite a few of the queries had been written by authors who already had published works. If I am buying this book, chances are that I am a new author, so those letters were not relevant to my needs. But it still gave me good structure for the letters.

Not a great book for novelists
This is probably a great book if you want some inspiration for a magazine query. The author of this book has written thousands of articles and clearly knows her stuff.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
But if you write novels, you'll want to find something else. The advice in the "novel" section is pretty straightforward. You've probably seen it elsewhere. The example queries are pretty decent. But novel queries take up only one, short chapter, and it really wasn't worth it.
Everything--right from the intro--is geared toward freelancing. So if you're looking for a stronger novel focus, this probably isn't the book for you.
