Custom Query & Pitch Writing for Picture Book Writers
Have you finally polished up a picture book manuscript that you’d like to submit to an agent or editor, but you’re stuck on the dreaded query letter?
Before getting an agent, I sent out from 2 to 6 submissions per week for one straight year. That’s a lot of query letter-writing! Now that I don’t have to do THAT anymore, I’m ready to help you. I can:
- write you a custom query letter/email: I’ll read over the picture book manuscript that you want to submit. I’ll write the query letter/email according to whom you’d like to send it. You’ll then be able to use my query letter as a template when writing queries for future manuscripts.
- critique your current query: I’ll “red pencil” edit your current query letter. I’ll proofread the spelling, grammar, and content, then email you my feedback.
Before getting an agent, I participated in several Twitter Pitch parties over the course of a year, and averaged a “Like” from an agent each time. This does NOT guarantee that the Twitter pitch I write for you will get an agent to want your particuliar manuscript. But, it will be a well-written pitch that shows off the essence of your manuscript while respecting Twitter’s 280-character limit. Each pitch will be emailed to you in image format, as well as in .docx or .pages format, for your future use. I will also include tips on getting your pitch noticed.
(If you need pitches for several different manuscripts at a time, my “Pitch Party Package” reduces the unit price of each pitch.)
Do you have other picture book query or pitch needs not covered here? Feel free to contact me.
