Query Letter

I'm at that stage in my writing where I'm almost ready to start querying agents. Right now though I'm just trying to learn as much as I can so when I do finally press send, I'll get the response I want. Thanks to everyone out there who has websites and blogs to help new writers like me.

I got a book today from the library that I hope will help me on this quest for the perfect query letter as well. It's called Guide to Query Letters. Hopefully, it will help me some.

Thanks also to everyone who is helping me edit my story right now. My goal is to have my query letter ready by the time my book is done being edited.

Do you judge a book by its cover?

For me, the answer is yes. Unfortunately, I like to read a lot of science fiction and fantasy novels, but the problem with that is, they usually have covers that I would rather not be seen with. I know, I'm terrible. But it is just so annoying when someone sees you reading and looks at the cover of your book while you are still holding it. Does anyone else out there have this problem?

I mean, really, who wants to be seen with a book with a dragon and a warrior looking princess on the cover? It's not that I don't like books like that, its just I don't have the courage to face society with those books.

So sad.
