Wednesday Morning Bloffee

Today I’m over at Matt Rush’s for some Wednesday morning bloffee.  He has graciously agreed to critique my query letter and offer it up for feedback from his wonderful followers.  

I’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s take - and sprucing up this query until it sparkles so if you all have time to take a look- I’d be forever grateful! Grab your bloffee and come on over!

That's so nice of him! I'm excited to see it. I've become a query psycho.

Carolyn V. said...

Very cool Katie! I'll have to check out your query!

Matthew Rush said...

It's my pleasure Creep. Your story sounds so awesome that I'm really hoping we can get your query polished up to match!

Keep coming back because I emailed some big wig friends asking them to stop by, but it might not happen until tonight.

I'm headed over there next, gotta have my bloffee, I love that.

Lisa Gail Green said...

Exciting! I'll go take a peek.

Donna Hole said...

Awesome; I'll check it out.

BTW: I enjoyed your Killing Time post. Sounds like you have excellent organizational skills.

I also wrote my query - and synopsis - between revisions. But, I think I'm still stuck in revision.

I understand the sentiment about always reading what it should say, not what it does say, no matter how much time passes. With my third novel, however, I think I'm really seeing what's there now. Probably because I hadn't opened it in forever.

I closed it right away. Argh, thats going to be a lot of revision!

I've already said what I needed to about the query over at Matt's, so let me just say here that if no one signs with this book, it'll be through no fault of your own. You have a rocking premise and what sounds to be really interesting characters. Best of luck with this!

OH I've just been at Matt's blog and loved all the suggestions to make your query letter just perfect! I'm not very good with hooks or query letters (I'm completely at the amateur side of writing etc) so I really wish you all the best with this!!! I think you've got the best word ever: Fossegrim!! Wonderful!! good luck and take care

Katie,

You already know I think this story is high concept, with a hook that will attract agents. After looking at your query, I have a couple suggestions, too.

I would dwindle your opening paragraph down to just 2 sentences. Boil Sage's angst and history down to a single sentence, and then hit the reader with that great line about the "freaking fish tail."

The second is to work in a reference to the historical legend behind Fossegrim in the next paragraph, briefly, so that the reader will know the significance of the name and the title of the story.

Not sure if I can help, but I'm jumping over there now!
