TFTSP: Query Letter Basics

Posted on: September 27, 2022

Tips from the Slush Pile: Your query letter should feature your book. I know, I know. This should go without saying. I want to know about your Hero, the Goal, the Obstacles, and the Stakes. I’d also like to see the genre and word count (even if it’s an estimate).
What I don’t need is a detailed run-down of daily life, your high school English teacher’s praise, the names of all your cats, and all the reasons why you didn’t submit your manuscript sooner.
Y’all need therapy.
