A to Z Challenge theme – Writing Resources!
Need help with your query letter?
Send it to Query Shark. Once a week, they post a query and provide suggestions. Sometimes they are brutal in their honesty! But it’s all to improve the query letter and show other writers how to/how not to write one.
Quote for the day:
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives. – William A. Foster
I sent a query to the Query Shark....she never used it though. It was probably just so awful. Great quote from Foster.
Brutal can be a good way as it can make one better at the end of the day
Constructive brutality...and the recipient must take it in the manner it's intended. Probably easier said than done. I'm sure it's a different story when you're in the situation, on the receiving end of the "brutality"
I love the quote!

I was never brave enough to send anything to the Query Shark, but just reading her critiques of the ones she gets is a great education in querying!
I've spent time on Query Shark and saw Janet at a conference once. She's something in person too.
Thanks for the link. Love the quote.

Query shark is a great resource. When I first looked into publishing, I spent a lot of time there and learning all I could.

Thank you! A great Q and I, do love this quote~
I've become scared of public critique...or have always been, really.
She's never taken a look at any I've sent; however, studying the ones she does rework helped me a lot.
