Confession: I love queries. Writing them. Reading them. Talking about them.
That's why I gave a really loud "squee!" when I found YA author Karsten Knight's UH-MAY-ZING query for his upcoming debut novel, Wildefire. Folks, not only did this query land him his (super awesome) agent, Ms. Mary Kole, but it captures the essence and voice of his novel so. Freakin'. Well.
Don't feel like taking my word for it? Check it out for yourself here.
Read it. Study it. Then go make sure yours is just as wonderful.
I know I'll be working on mine ;)
Now tell me: do queries make you panic? Smile? Both???
