I'm new to the world of novel writing, though I've been writing screenplays (feature and television) for several years now. I've written my novel, and gotten it to a good place - good enough to start thinking about sending it out. However, I've been doing research, and I'm confused when it comes to writing the query letter. I understand all the elements that go into a novel query letter. But for every example posted online where the author introduced the title/word count/genre first, there's another where the author dove straight into the hook and/or mini-synopsis right after 'Dear....'. Does it matter if I give the title, genre, and length first, or have it come after the story summary? Or is it more of a personal judgment call? When I'm writing query letters for screenplays, I always introduced it first before giving the logline, as there's a good consensus on doing so. But there's no consensus I've found for novel queries. What are your thoughts?
