U is for Unique

I read all the books on how to write a query letter. I practiced. I sent out queries. I found I was getting no response. Not even a rejection. I got nothing.

So I decided that since I am different my query had to be different and unique. I had my main character in my novel write the query to a small publisher. She introduced the problem. Then she introduced me. Finally she sent the editor my first 5,000 words.

Would you believe I had a contract within a week??? Yep. My book was published about six months later. We are working on a book launch party and book signings too.

Find a way to get your personality across when you send a query. Be the Unique person that you are.

  1. What a great idea!! I'll remember your post when it's time to look for a publisher for my next novel. Thanks for sharing!
