Working on a novel you want to share with the world? Or perhaps you’ve actually finished a book! Whether you have a polished draft or a work in progress, you may have shown your manuscript to fellow writers, friends, or family. But that’s not the same as submitting to an editor at a publishing house. For that, you need a literary agent. So how do you get one? In The Keys to the Query, you learn to write a query letter that will move your book forward on the path to publication. Based on three key paragraphs, you’ll create a single-page document that presents your story—and yourself—in the very best light: the spotlight.
After parting ways with her first literary agent, Mimi received multiple offers of representation before signing with second. She compares the art of query writing to solving a puzzle, and views the process as a way for authors to better know their books, as well as find the right agent. Her two novels, Before Goodbye and Shining Sea, are published by a major publishing house and are available now.
