Do you have query letter phobia? Or are you getting results from your queries? Did you check out the Readsy post? What's your take?
How many times I have read my work through before submitting to publisher only to find......more mistakes.
Thanks for an excellent post Lee.
Have a great week.
And please all writers, read it and learn.
It still surprises me how many don't know, and then get miffed when they fail when it is really their fault.
This is awesome. Queries do make me nervous, but this is one to bookmark to help make me feel a little better.
Always worry about my query. It's something you have to get just right.
I'm saving this as a reminder. Thanks.
I know its important, but I HATZ IT!
Thanks for the advice!
I've often found threats of physical violence do wonders.
And in all seriousness, very good little piece. Thank you.
I can use all the help I can get when I have to write one of these. Thanks Reedsy.
