Hello, I have finished my first novel and decided on an agent I would like to submit it to. Her guidelines are (Please send us a query letter of no more than two pages, which includes your credentials, an explanation of what makes your book unique and special, and a synopsis.) I have no credentials, nothing. I failed English, didn't go to college. The fact that I even finished my book is amazing to me. I am terrified to write this letter because I am afraid my lack of knowledge and experience will be why I am rejected. How do you write a good letter like that. Should I just be honest and say I have no credentials at all and just focus mostly on the synopsis? I don't want to embellish because it feels like lying. I really really want this one agent to accept me as a client. I know I shouldn't limit myself to just one and be grateful if anyone wants to represent me, but I want to start with her. I don't know how to write a synopsis. I have looked and it seems like every bit of advice conflicts with the prior one. Do this, don't do that... I am stressing out. One said hook them, make them ask for the book. Another said absolutely not. Never leave them guessing tell them what happens. I feel like I have so much working against me before I have even started. I don't want my own ignorance to be my downfall. I want to be successful at writing, I just feel like I have no clue what I am doing. Any help at all would be wonderful. I thought the hard part would be writing the stupid novel lol I put off the synopsis because I thought how hard can it be? Boy did I have no clue.
