Vying for an agent's attention when you are just one of many emails in their inbox can be a daunting task. The first step is getting noticed with your query letter and then following it up with sample pages that will make them hungry for more. Sounds easy enough, but the question remains - how do you do it?
Kimberly Brower has several clients who write romance, women's fiction and thrillers some of whom she has found through queries. Almost all of them have gone on to sign publishing deals as a result of that first query and sample chapters. In this presentation, she gives you important tips to consider while writing your query and suggestions to help make you stand out amongst the masses.
