View Full Version : The Query Letter that ATE MY BRAIN!

05-18-2008, 12:28 AM
I have written over 100 pages of a memoir, but am struggling with the one page query. Does anyone have a query for a memoir they're fond of? Would love to see it if you'd like to share.

More generally speaking, does anyone ever feel beaten up by their queries? The queries I've written for other projects were easy in comparison to this one ...

Come over to the share your work forum for query letters. We have a warm, inviting atmosphere with a party going on every day. People come and just don't seem to want to leave, because it's so kind and inviting. (Please note, to those of you who have just spewed coffee/soda/other fluids over the keyboard, don't blame me.)

Seriously, a search of that forum will give you several people who have struggled with their memoir queries. Come on over and visit and we'll see whether we can help you.

Best of luck,

JCD has some good advice. There are some great Query Gurus over there.

Cause querying sucks rotten pond scum. Yes, it does.
