Rather than yap away, I'll post the query letter. I am going to spend another week+ editing, then have a draft for anyone who is interested. Please note: This work includes very detailed sexual content, some violent descriptions and (obviously) some strong language. Also, some of the scenes include what many might consider to be perverse acts.



-----------------

Marina Crown, failed actress, is about to be famous for all the wrong reasons. Her movie career has never taken off. With every work being a financial disaster, no one wants to hire her. If she doesn’t find work soon, she’ll be out on the streets of California.
Thinking she’ll get notoriety, she approaches a porn studio to make a video with her husband. The quick cash will cover her bills, and the controversy could turn the heads of some Hollywood producers. Unfortunately, the only producer who wants her is an indie fiend who can’t pay her upfront, but promises a percent of gross. She also has to chip in a bit to get the movie through post-production. Then she discovers she’s pregnant, but her husband doesn’t need to know that just yet.
Thinking it is for the short-term, she dives just a bit deeper into the adult film industry to keep the money flowing in. Unfortunately, a studio member’s external romp has brought HIV on to the set, despite monthly STD tests, and shared the disease with Marina. Her husband can’t handle it, the indie production is on the rocks, and she needs to do what she can to save herself and her unborn child. With medical bills looming overhead, there is only one solution in sight: sue the porn studio for workplace safety negligence – if the courts will listen.
HIT THAT* is an 89,000-word sexually-charged drama.

I offered to beta on a beta-request thread you posted two weeks ago, and you never replied to that thread again. Are you actually ready to share it now?

My apologies, I must have forgotten to subscribe to the thread. Yes, I am ready to share. I have the first 230 pages edited and need to edit about 60 more, but there is more than enough to give one a good start. I expect to finish my revisions within a couple of days. Please PM me with your e-mail. So sorry about the lack of a reply.
