How to Write Attention-Grabbing Query & Cover Letters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Wood sees it with numbing regularity: the query letter that comes close to making a sale - until the writer makes some fatal, but avoidable mistake.

So the Modern Maturity senior editor wrote this letter-writer's guidebook. Read it, learn from it, use its secrets to write queries that get accepted.

Discover:

why boldness beats blandness every time

how to rocket your query right past the slush pile

how to make a big impression with a little cover letter

the 10 basics you must have in your article query

the 10 query blunders that can ruin your chances

how to dramatize your novel with a query/synopsis package

what a book proposal is, why you need it, and how to write it

As you publish more, your professional correspondence will increase. Whether the correspondence is a complaint to your editor, a celebrity interview request or anything else connected with your career, you'll make it ring with style and professionalism with this book.

Wood includes chapter-ending Question & Answer sections that clarify issues concerning the type of letter at hand. He's also packed the book with illustrative samples. You'll see many that are pure dynamite - and one real bomb.

Read this book and immediately begin to write energetic, masterly, persuasive letters. Keep editors hanging on your words. Make them eager to buy your work.
