This is what I have: the hook line, the one paragraph summary, and the a “thank you read more” thing at the bottom. Here are my questions. 1. How many paragraphs do I need if I have no writer credits. 2. In examples, I’ve seen a paragraph where the author tells the agent why he or she has chosen said agent. How important is that, and how should I go about it if I’ve only chosen the agent from a list? 3. Where should the name of the novel and word count appear? Should I give exact word count? Should it be a single sentence at the bottom of the hook line? This is how it is laid out: Date Agent name Agent address Dear Agent: Hook line. One paragraph summary. Finally, a line thanking agent and asking them if they would like to read the full manuscript. That’s what I got. Thanks.
