I've been losing my mind trying to write this hook and summary over the past week, so it would be wonderful to get some feedback on what I've got now. Just so I know if I'm headed to the right direction. And no, my novel doesn't actually have a title. I probably have to query with the placeholder name, and honestly, I'm not sure if that's a problem? I tried to incorporate the tone of the novel (it's in first person, a little snarky and tongue-in-cheek), but it's harder than I thought, especially cos I'm super over-analyzing everything. I'm also worried about the genre. I personally always saw it as urban fantasy, but the synopsis makes it sound like paranormal crime, and I guess in a way it is, but urban fantasy elements are also very strong (the presence of the city as the backdrop for the story, UF staples like vampires and vampire hunters, witches…), so I wouldn't want to mislead the agent. Any tips would be more than welcome. Maybe comparisons to similar works would help? Anyway, here we go. *** Dear [insert name], I’m writing to seek representation for my 88 770-word debut fantasy novel, ALEXA UNDEAD. [add personalized comments about the agent's list, how they represent other urban fantasy titles so Alexa would be a good fit etc.] Alexa Galindez didn’t know death had a return policy. Yet here she is, fresh from the grave, resurrected by the magic of Detective Jai Arobin, who needs her help to solve her own murder. Life after death is not a plug-in-and-play kind of situation; it takes getting used to. Alexa’s body carries the scars the killer inflicted on her as constant reminders of what she’s lost. Now all she has left is revenge. Call it unfinished business, but she is determined to catch her murderer, and when she finds out her mind is connected to the killer’s, it’s only a matter of time before she corners him. There’s just one ’but,’ one tiny detail Jai neglected to mention: the Guardian of Death never agreed to relinquish Alexa back to the world of the living, and now he wants her back. *** Thank you in advance!
