Okay, I'm not one for really posting on this because I've only submitted one novel 3 different times and got rejected 3 different times! Oy... But here is my query letter:
Dear Super Agent Girl,
Stormy Winter Sky believes she is an ordinary teen until her first kiss with Alex Stormhold. DARKSPELL is a young adult paranormal romance, complete at 96,409 words.
From the moment Alex meets Winter, he cannot hide who he is—the key to her hidden past. Alex unlocks a world Winter thought impossible, a place of dark secrets and magic, where she discovers a disturbing secret of her own. .Alex risks his life and her love to keep Winter safe from the evil that seeks her out, for he is the only one who can protect her from its control.
Here are my accomplishments in the writing. I placed second in the Peach Days short story contest. International Poets Society published a few of my poems in 1996 and 2008. Published several poems and a few short stories in the Riverside High School Literary Magazine, Borderlines in 1992.
Thank you for taking the time to consider representing my work. I hope to hear from you soon.
*Ducking* Okay, go ahead and throw the tomatoes, I need some for my salad anyway!
What do you think?
*updated: This is the Query Letter that won my Publisher!
