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 an agent or editor. 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. Hi again. Strangely, I'm taking a query hiatus while I work on some revisions, so I don't actually need an urgent query critique at the moment. In the spirit of doing my revisions, though, I'm also rewriting the query, though, so if I win, then, whoo hoo! :)

    Thanks again!

    1. Thanks, Sharon--I'm so glad it was helpful!

    2. I tweeted your post and someone already retweeted it. :)

  5. Awesome! I've been working on different versions of my query all week, so this would be good timing.

  6. Yes. My query has been overworked and lost its voice. I need a crit on the new one. Hopefully I get lucky.
