Writer's Digest: How to Write the Perfect Query Letter - Query Letter Example
How to Write a Query Letter - AgentQuery
If you're overwhelmed, frustrated, and feeling down... You're in good company. Take heart in knowing that even best selling authors faced multiple rejections before hitting it big! This list includes some of my favorite authors: J. K. Rowling, Dr. Seuss, Judy Blume, L. M. Montgomery...
Madeline L'Engle received 26 rejections for her book A Wrinkle In Time!!!!
Nicolas Sparks received 24 rejections for The Notebook! And he has written how many best sellers that have gone on to make amazing movies???
What I'm saying is: If your goal is to be published through the traditional means,
DON'T GIVE UP!!!
Here is a great link for some successful queries too.
