I'm in my last stage of editing and I'm getting ready to send my work out. I don't often do this but I could really use some help from everyone. I'm posting my query letter up here and if you guys could tell me if it's good, I'd really appreciate it! Even if you aren't a writer, just tell me if you'd be intrigued reading it!
Here we go:
Dear Agent (obviously I'm changing this),
Sixteen-year-old Blake Porter just landed a job to die for… literally.
Found half dead on her front porch, Blake wakes up in the hospital a day later with no memory of the previous 32 hours. The answer arrives on her doorstep in the form of a strange guy, claiming to be the Charon from Greek Mythology, there to pass on the paddle for the rest of eternity. The only stipulation for the new gig is a six day expiration date, and a bad case of denial.
Eighteen-year-old Aiden Wright is still freaked after discovering Blake’s almost lifeless body, especially since he’s been nursing a crush on her for years. Spending most of his childhood alone with Law and Order, he decided to model his life after his fictional heroes, but now he’s not sure he’s cut out for the job.
All Aiden’s detective prep comes in handy when a string of “accidental” deaths occur at their high-school. Aiden suspects a murderer, Blake knows the truth. It’s going to take all of Blake’s courage, and every detective skill Aiden can conjure up to crack this case; before all Hades breaks loose.
Styx and Stones is a young adult paranormal novel completed at around 73,000 words and told in alternating point of views. (There will be more here tailoring it to the agent)
Alright, let me know what you think! I really appreciate it!
