Wednesday Query Critique Giveaway

It's Wednesday Query Critique time! Remember to enter by midnight EST in order for your chance to win the weekly query critique.

REMINDERS: These critiques are for those who prefer a private critique versus a public one. Please read my prior post on Query Tips before entering. Also, as mentioned in my big giveaway, I tend to be very direct and picky, but my goal is to get your query in the best shape possible. Finally, the query is only the first step--make sure the entire book is as good as the query before you hit "Send." To enter the weekly query critique giveaway, simply follow the directions below. Good luck!

Just leave a comment telling me you'd like to be entered in the giveaway and give your email address, using (at) and (com) as follows so the spam bots don't find you. 
I will use a random number generator to pick the winner who will receive a query critique through email. NOTE: If your query involves space monkeys, I might make an exception and do an extra critique!


  1. I would love a critique for my query (YA contemporary romance). No space monkeys, alas. mddavi03 at yahoo dot com. Thanks for offering!

  2. What a generous thing you do! I recently revised my query by committee on my blog, but I think the old version actually garnered more requests! Now I'm in a quandry, and don't know what to do. Thanks for this opportunity!

  4. Thank you for the opportunity. cebr(at)comcast(dot)net

  5. Crossing my fingers - I really need a query critique! orders.bills(at)gmail(dot)com

    1. I know, right? After a few initial promising bites form agents, I am getting nothing but crickets and e-form-rejections in the inbox. My ego is covered in tire tracks and pigeon poop.

    2. The tire tracks just make you that much stronger. Not sure about the pigeon poop. :)

  6. I'd love to be entered!! Fizzygrrl(at)gmail(dot)com

  7. Thanks for doing this Kristi! sharon k mayhew (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. I'd love a query critique on mine too!


  9. Third time lucky. Statistically that means... nothing. However, I'd still like to be put into the mix for you to review my query regarding the spectacular novel I've written - "Space Monkeys Go Ape"*
