#4877206 Would you read this book?

Posted by andufusthebronze on 01 June 2011 - 06:37 AM in Art and Media

Hmm I dunno. Every writer book I've read has suggested this format of Query Letter, and there are websites such as http://queryshark.blogspot.com/ that are run by agents to help you to write them in a style similar to this.

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?



#4876775 Would you read this book?

Posted by andufusthebronze on 01 June 2011 - 12:15 AM in Art and Media

This is my most recent draft of the Query Letter for my current project, a novel titled 'Ace, King, Queen'.
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?

Dear Agent,

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 he’s 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 contender’s essence.

Torn between an attempt of reconciliation made by his brother and his only chance to ‘feel’ again, Gael’s 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 Writer’s Forum magazine.

Thank you for your consideration,

Andrew E. King.

#4901781 What makes someone a "bad person"?

Posted by andufusthebronze on 19 June 2011 - 01:36 AM in Off-Topic

After reading the '5 Worst People' thread, I got wondering.

What kinds of thing make someone a bad person?
What groups of people would you consider bad people?
Why?



#4895425 What book are you currently reading?

Posted by andufusthebronze on 14 June 2011 - 03:41 PM in Off-Topic

Looking for Alaska by John Green.

It's exceptional.



#4879233 Top 5 Worst People of All Time

Posted by andufusthebronze on 02 June 2011 - 08:59 PM in Off-Topic

This is really interesting question, actually.
I'll give this some thought and get back to you.
Stalin & Hitler would probably take two of the slots, though.



#4894434 Top 5 Best People of All Time

Posted by andufusthebronze on 13 June 2011 - 10:38 PM in Off-Topic

In no particular order

Buddha
Ghandi
Che Gevara
Jesus (Despite not being Christian I believe he did a lot of good)
The common man.

That awkward moment you can't even hold a 20 minute conversation with someone who used to be your best friend.

I woke up at 11:55am. This means it was still morning.
I consider this a success.



#4876763 Things that annoy the HELL out of you.

Posted by andufusthebronze on 01 June 2011 - 12:04 AM in Off-Topic

Anyone who falls for those 'OMG GIRL KILLED HERSELF AFTER HER FATHER POSTED THIS ON FACEBOOK' scams.


This.
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.



#4878951 Things that annoy the HELL out of you.

Exams.



#4925464 Things that annoy the HELL out of you.

S. 978 is literally so that the government can ask people: "you mad bro?"

Seems pointless.



#4881416 The F2P General Discussion Thread

Posted by andufusthebronze on 04 June 2011 - 01:37 PM in General Discussion

OrTradeMe, it bothers me that the Mod in your signature used the wrong your/you're. XD

And tbh, I struggle to group with people no matter what world I use for dungeoneering. That's probably because I'm an idiot though DX



#4894485 The 'You're Banned' Game (over 38,000 banned!)

Posted by andufusthebronze on 13 June 2011 - 11:06 PM in Forum Games

Banned for not finishing your first sentence.



#4894521 TET Recruitment Drive 2011

Good luck to everyone else who's applying.



#4956441 Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted by andufusthebronze on 28 July 2011 - 05:27 PM in Off-Topic

I actually really want to play this.
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.



#4900911 RuneFest 2011

Posted by andufusthebronze on 18 June 2011 - 02:19 PM in General Discussion

What kinds of things actually happen at RuneFest? I could probably afford to go if I wanted to, but I'm not really sure what it is. :|
Is it basically BlizzCon for RS?



#4880221 Rumors

Posted by andufusthebronze on 03 June 2011 - 02:55 PM in Off-Topic

Has anyone seen the film Easy A? That's a film all about how rumours spread in High Schools, it's bloody hilarious.

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?

...No. :lol:

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.



#4918237 Reveal Confessions, Secrets & Regrets...

Posted by andufusthebronze on 28 June 2011 - 11:52 PM in Off-Topic

Even though I barely think about you anymore (mainly because I never see you) when I do see or think about you, my feelings will always return: even if just for that instant.
It kinda sucks.



#4925384 Reveal Confessions, Secrets & Regrets...

Posted by andufusthebronze on 03 July 2011 - 10:59 PM in Off-Topic


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.



#4900769 Reveal Confessions, Secrets & Regrets...

Posted by andufusthebronze on 18 June 2011 - 12:24 PM in Off-Topic

Until I was 6, I genuinely wanted to be a duck. When my first teacher (Mrs. Evans, the [bleep]) told me that it was impossible, I cried for the rest of the day.

And I've never been 100% sure of what I want to be since then.

Err... Not quite sure what that's supposed to mean. DX

Wow, just looked at my pictures from the index.
They're bloody awful!

Can I replace them with these two photos please...

That's some sexy hair growth you got there. I wish I could grow a beard >.>


Haha, I wish I couldn't!
Shaving gets old after a while!
