Discussion in 'Query & Cover Letter Critique' started by Tenderiser, Mar 29, 2016.
Great blog post. I tweeted the link for you.
I forgot to mention there's a second part coming up where I'll post her critique of my query. Thought it would help others who are querying, and maybe reduce some of the anxiety about getting the "perfect" letter--because they don't have to be perfect.
Thank you for posting Amanda's replies to all of your and members questions. This is very helpful to a new writer and I have bookmarked the whole discussion!
Just now reading this but really cool interview and thanks for including some of my questions
...May have to add her to the query list if for no other reason than I have a major character whose surname is Jain and I'm just plucky enough to pitch on that alone.
What do you look for in a query? A story?
Very informative. Thank you.
Is it impossible to get a Dystopian YA published even in this kind of market?
I doubt that there's any genre anyone could say for a fact, couldn't get published. Anything is possible if it's entertaining enough
As Doggie said, it's never impossible but I doubt many agents are going to offer representation for one at the moment. You're better off writing something else and trying to sell the dystopian novel in the future, when they become trendy again.
