This is my first stab at writing a query for this book and a published author has read and edited it, but I'd love some more feedback before I start sending it out to agents. This one was written specifically for an agent that said she wanted LGBT love stories, which is why I started the way I did. Also, the query is a form with a separate area for a bio and title and word count, so all those are not mentioned in here. Good afternoon [agent], I read that you’re looking for LGBTQ+ love stories, and to be honest, I am too. As a gay woman, I’m always on the lookout for books, movies or any media with the type of love story I can truly relate to. After years of failing to find what I’ve been looking for, I decided to write my own. Aria is normal. She lives in a normal house with her normal parents and is a normal student at a normal high school. The only exception to her general normality is that she’s the most popular girl in her senior class. Like any normal girl, she loves going shopping with her friends and spending time with her boyfriend. Sure, she never tells her friends about any of the actual problems in her life, and sure, she flinches whenever her boyfriend does anything more than hug her, but she’s still normal. Then one day, Aria is assigned to a month-long chemistry project with a classmate named Abigail. Aria has never talked to Abigail, but the girl’s snippy tone and haughty expression tells Aria that this is going to be a long month. Yet as she spends time with Abigail outside of school, Aria sees the kind, funny girl behind the cold mask and finds herself drawn to Abigail in a way she’s never experienced before. Of course, this strange attraction isn’t romantic in any way. As Aria’s mother always tells her, homosexuality is evil and Aria isn’t evil, so she can’t be gay… Right? No Such Thing as Blind Love is the kind of book I needed to read when I was Aria’s age. It’s a story about a far too underrepresented type of romance, featuring characters who for too long have felt out of the ordinary. Thank you for your time and consideration, Also, this is my bio (I'm not sure whether it's long enough): My name is (name) and I’m a student at (my university). I’m planning on majoring in math and minoring in creative writing. Reading and writing are my passions and I’m absolutely the type of person who packs my suitcase with more books than clothes because I’d rather run out of things to wear than things to read. I have self-published two books, (title) and (title), the first when I was sixteen years old and the second when I was seventeen. I’ve also placed in several writing contests, such as (contest) and (contest).
