Crafting Query Letters

A query letter’s purpose is to persuade an editor or an agent to read your manuscript—to invest their time in our work. It needs to be seductive and contain charming persuasion. It is a sales letter and displays your book as a marketable product. The following steps will help you craft a successful query letter.

Born Again and Again and Again

Whether no one in the free world realizes it or not, writing is work. It is hard work, carved out not in one sitting but in painfully slow creative sentences until finally ‘The End’ is pecked out at the bottom of a page. Only then can a writer smile. Me?

Maintaining and Growing a Successful Writer Blog

Once you have set up your blog and identified your target audience and know what theme/topics you will
cover, now you need to maintain it. One of the most important tasks is to ensure you have a regular schedule, so your readers know when to expect a post from you. Set days and times that are manageable for your lifestyle and time constraints. Be realistic about how much time you can give to your blog, do not overwhelm yourself with unrealistic goals. Posts can be weekly, monthly or quarterly – as long as the schedule is recurring.

Train Into the Valley of Madness: Episode One

No one ever knows a train conductors name and few ever concern themselves with discovering it, so
throughout this story the man who is the second most significant person aboard the train will be identified simply as, the Conductor.

The Conductor strode easily up and down the aisle of the train moving from car to car assisting where needed and admonishing where necessary. Mostly he simply observed, but his attention had a shadow to it masked with a sly grin.
