My name is Stephanie King, and I'm the head content editor with Grit City Publications – http://gritcityserial.com
- home of a new avenue in fiction: the emotobook. I read your query letter for 'Mad as a Hatter' and would love to take a look at your novel and see if it would be a good fit to be published with our company.
An emotobook is a form of serial ebook, a story broken into ten installments and enhanced with stunning abstract art to reel the reader deeper into the story. Should I like your novel, you'd work with an editor – like me – and transform your novel into this new breed of book. It would then be handed off to an illustrator.
The initial contract with us would last for five years, meaning we would have exclusive publishing rights to your story for five years. We would publish it and promote it on our website and our blogs, through Twitter and Facebook. To get the most out of it, you would be best doing your own promotions, as well, via social media and anything else you can think of. You would be paid royalties on the work, and the more issues you sell each month the better you'll get paid. At the end of those three years, you can choose to take the book off the market, publish with someone else, or renew your contract with us and keep selling through Grit City Publications.
We're looking to get ten novels on the 'shelves' by Christmas, and I want yours to be one of them. Get back to me as soon as you can; the faster we get started, the sooner your baby will be on the market, and the richer we'll all be.

and I'll keep you updated with any new information that comes out. If you have any further questions, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll do my best to answer them.
If you know someone else who has a finished novel and might be interested, please tell them to send a query to me at email@example.com
They must be at least 18, and the book must not have been published in the past.
