How to Write Query Letters That Sell

Ready to excite literary agents with a well-crafted query letter?

 

Whether you are writing fiction or nonfiction, a query letter is crucial if you are set on traditionally publishing your book. As an agent and also an author, I can tell you this is one of the most important documents you will create. A poorly written query letter can hinder your chances of catching the attention of a literary agent or publisher, preventing you from moving to the next step of submitting your manuscript. 

I've reviewed thousands of query letters over the past few years as an agent and a consultant, and I want to share with you what works and what doesn't. Don't miss my popular LIVE Masterclass on this important topic. Browse below the video to see what you will receive when you take this class.

Book Proposals That Sell

Ready to catch the eye of a publisher or agent with a polished book proposal?

 

For all of my fellow nonfiction writers, I know firsthand how daunting a book proposal can seem when you are first starting out. As an agent and also an author, I can tell you this is one of the most important documents you will create, and it is crucial that certain elements are in your book proposal in order for publishing houses and agents to make a decision.  

I've worked on and critiqued hundreds of book proposals over the past few years and I want to help you understand what works and what can work against you. Don't miss my popular LIVE Masterclass on this important topic. Browse below the video to see what you will receive when you take this class.
