You send this Query and 3 Chapters.
Then, if they like it they request a full, at THAT point you send the cover letter, the full synopsis and the entire manuscript.
The Query Letter is an attempt to entice them to the general plot.
And really? In honesty, no-one's told me that about this plot before. I wasn't even sure the book was fantasy because of the fact that all it has is souls.
Broken down family/lover figure was changed in the redraft from his best friend because I felt it worked better, and I thought best friend relationships struggling were a lot more common in books aimed at young people than sibling relationships.
I could argue all of your points but that would render this exercise useless. Thank you for your comments, I shall have a look at what I can do rewriting it to make it sound less generic.
Actually, I have one more question. From this letter, what do you think happens in the book?
A Query Letter is what you send to either a Literary Agent, or a Publisher, along with the first 3 chapters of your work in a hope to get them interested. However, if the query letter isn't good enough, they won't look look at the chapters. Thus, it is important to have a good query letter.
I don't feel that this draft is perfect, but I would like some feedback on it. So any constructive criticism is welcome, but the fundamental question remains: would you read this book?
The relationship with his brother in tatters and his lack of a soul beginning to decay his senses, Gael Brett is a teen on the verge of suicide.
A victim of mankind and depression, Gael is dragged even further into the world of deception than hes grown accustomed to: but this time in the name of salvation. If he can obtain an entire deck of souls, then his shall be returned to him.
However, as with all offers of this kind, there is, of course, a catch. He is not the only one attempting redemption, and the charity of the organization which now counts his soul as their own will only extend to the return of one contenders essence.
Torn between an attempt of reconciliation made by his brother and his only chance to feel again, Gaels lies entrench themselves within his reality, until his crimes against humanity far exceed the petty theft from days of old.
ACE, KING, QUEEN, a fantasy/gothic novel of [insert number] words is a sinister competition seen from the point of view of both competitors.
I have previously had a poem published in the Writers Forum magazine.
Thank you for your consideration,
Andrew E. King.
Anyone who falls for those 'OMG GIRL KILLED HERSELF AFTER HER FATHER POSTED THIS ON FACEBOOK' scams.
A million times this.
I mean come on, people.
And also, those twelve year old girls that GENUINELY believe Justin Beiber is 'the one' for them. I mean, I honestly feel sorry for the guy.
Who would want that kind of attention from that kind of an audience? It's genuinely repulsive.
I want the Collectors Edition, but I don't want it badly enough to pay the prices they're asking for. I'd pay maybe £90, but not £120. I might buy the Digital Deluxe one though. I intend to look into it a little bit more first, just to make sure I really do want it. So far though, it looks pretty good.
The fact that they're allowing pre-orders without either a) a release date or b) any information on how much this game is going to cost is a bit worrying to me, though.
The best part of how true it is.
What actually happened: you insulted someone heavily.
A week later, someone comes up to you: DID YOU REALLY PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE?
The only major rumour about me was that I broke someone's nose.
Though that was true. So that's probably more gossip than rumour.
Confession: I'm not as happy as I should be about getting Head Boy at school. It just seems like an effort.
I can so relate to this Andu, everyone wants me to be it for the next year but I really don't want it. More important things to worry about than such a silly position, and the thoughts of having to host an awards night, yuck.
Too many secrets to tell.
Seriously: I'm doing 4 A levels and have 2 part time jobs. I have enough going on in my life without being the focal point of the school and making speeches to every parent to wander into my school's doors ever.
Literally the only upside is that I get a funky tie.
