I would like to have constructive advice on my proposed query letter. It fits onto an A4 page with room for addresses and contact details 'Dear Mr A Gent I recognise by your website that you represent writers of historical fiction and fantasy. My book, ‘Devereux’, is an historical fantasy and complete at 113,000 words. I have in mind for it to be the first in a series of books entitled ‘The Annals of Clan Devereux’. ‘Philip Carmichael has extraordinary talents but he is not yet aware of them. While spelunking in Deepwell, he falls to an undiscovered cavern and finds alien remains. He searches the body and removes two strange bracelets. Squinting against a sudden flash, a searing pain rushes through him and Philip disappears. He awakes in the 11th century bewildered and sees that the alien is barely alive. It touches his mind and attempts to inform Philip what has happened. While he struggles to understand the alien’s meanings, it dies. Its spirit bonds with Philip, slowly bringing forth his hidden abilities. Philip sets up camp in the cavern and realises he can manufacture exceptional merchandise incorporating alien materials. He sets out on a path of discovery when introducing himself and his goods to the medieval populace of Gloucestershire. The spirit guides and assists Philip with all tasks, giving him the belief he will find a means to return to the 20th century. Philip never enquires of the spirit why it has arrived on Earth; the thought to do so fades from his mind when close to the body. In fact, the alien spirit has its own agenda; an agenda involving the expected one, Philip Carmichael.’ I am new to writing and the more I typed, the more my hunger grows. I don’t have any published works; however, I have a fondness for medieval history and fantasy which drove me to begin writing. As mentioned in my introduction, Devereux has been written with a series in mind. I researched in depth the historical facts within the book therefore maintaining a flow that will continue through to the next volumes. I include my contact details and wait patiently for your response. Regards Pat J Kane'
