Let the Queries Begin

I am in the process of polishing up my query letter so I can send it off to agents.   I have been researching on this very helfpul site: Query Shark.   My “About the Book” page has been updated to reflect my latest query draft.  If you have any comments about this new draft–how enticing or concise or useful it seems or doesn’t seem–feel free to leave a comment, especially if you know a thing or two about query letters yourself.   For others on the agenting quest, I’ve been using another helpful website called Query Tracker which allows you to research agents online and also keep track of your search and submission process.
