Yesterday, I took a look in my query pile, and liveblogged my reactions to 10 queries. If you follow me on Twitter, you already saw this, but if not, here’s a recap.
On my submissions page, I recommend that writers querying me include the first1 three pages of their manuscript along with their letter. Why these three pages? Mostly because I recognize that the art of writing a good, strong query letter isn’t the same as the art of writing a novel. (What to say or not say in a query letter is a WHOLE other topic to be tackled on another day.)
