Well, they like my query letter, anyway. After fussing and worrying about my query for MONTHS I finally send some out. And then I heard back from two publishers!
For those who don’t know query letters: it’s kinda of like a cover letter for your resume. If an employer doesn’t like your cover letter, he won’t read your resume. Same for queries – if it doesn’t work, the manuscript won’t get read.
But that hasn’t been the case! I’ve had two companies contact me after they read my query letter (and I only sent them out last week!). I think that’s pretty good 🙂 Even if they don’t publish my book, at least I know I can write a persuasive query. And no, it hasn’t slipped my attention that it could be called the Beery Query.
I’ll keep you posted…I’m excited!
