Query Letters

Query letters, I've decided, are the bane of my existence. I hate them. I hate marketing. I think it's ridiculous. I think that people should magically get paid to do things they're passionate about.

Unfortunatley, I've been told, mostly, it doesn't work that way.

After a 1 to 8 interest to flat rejects for my last round of agent query letters, I'm totally rewriting it again.

Lynn Flewelling has a good sample up, but it's tough to find good ones for SF/F work. Most of the ones I've found online are for romance, crime lit, or non-fiction work.
