I've just been curious about how a query letter is structured and figured I may as well give it a crack before I start doing the real thing. I have looked at the other query letters to draw examples from, so I hope this works: * * * Dear Sir or Madam, (okay, yuck, can someone help me figure out just a rough idea of what I should put here?) Keitsumah never asked to start seeing ghosts or to find a strange necklace. Nor did she ask to live in a world cloaked by winter and terrorized by Shifters. She was just an ordinary girl trying to survive in a harsh land with few options. But when her village is attacked, her brother killed, and everything that she loved destroyed, Keitsumah discovers a great and frightening power. The power of the Starshade. What if you had such power? What if you had the capability to destroy everything that has hurt or will hurt you? These are the questions that I hope to answer in this starting book to the Starshade's Legacy: Last of the Imirri. * * * well, I had to do this quickly 'cuz school's out now for Christmas break, but what do you guys think?
