I mostly lurk on here on 48 days these days, but logged in to look for some info on writing a query letter. I only had to scroll down a couple of inches and there it was. Thanks, Connie.

Diane -- I visited queryshark.com and am having no luck finding what you describe. Could you double check that web address for me? I'd love to visit.

Thanks so much!

Connie -- Thanks for the book teaser! I look forward to reading it. 

Chuck's Guide to Literary Agents is a great resource, and the examples there are very enlightening. 

Another great resource for query samples is queryshark.com, a blog run by literary agent Janet Reid. She allows writers to send in actual query letters, then she critiques them rips them to shreds there on the blog. :) Her comments are incredibly helpful because she breaks the letters down and covers specifics of the good and the bad.
