So you’ve got that first book written, you’ve gone through your Writer’s Market and have got a list of places you want to send it to. Now you have to write the Query Letter. In John Wood’s book How to Write Attention- Grabbing Query and Cover Letters, you‘ll learn the intricacies of writing a good letter. No matter the genre, non-fiction to fiction to magazine articles, covers how to write a query letter that's going to catch the eye of the editor. This book also provides sample letters and breaks them out into the six sections identified in the chapters.
For fiction writers, The Novel Query and Synopsis chapter not only covers the art of writing the query letter, but how to put together your synopsis as well. In some cases, editors ask for the synopsis over the full manuscript or even ask for both together. If you've never written a synopsis, no worries, this book goes through the standards and provides a Q&A.
Last, is the cover letter. Some people don't realize the difference between a query and a cover letters. This writer didn't at first, but this book covers both and the information found in each.
