Re: Query 'Kat's Tale'

Hey~ I'm not sure if you've made any revisions to this and stuck it up elsewhere or not, but I took a look and thought that this link might help more than anything I have to say. http://blog.nathanbransford.com/2010/08/how-to-write-query-letter.html http://querytracker.blogspot.com/2010/06/how-to-gr...

Re: Query - Figment - YA Fantasy
